  • Kris Allen, from the US television show American Idol, visited the temporary settlement Petite Place Cazeau in Port-au-Prince, currently home to 3,300
    people living in makeshift tents. There he witnessed the UN in action as PAHO/WHO, UNFPA, WFP and UNICEF carried out a nutrition programme on behalf of the MSPP to prevent malnutrition in infants and children. Together with UN Foundation coordinator Kathy Calvin, a video crew filmed interviews with camp residents and learned that food, latrines, nutrition and equipment for newborns were among the displaced population’s top priorities. On 25 February, footage from the visit will air on U.S. TV to raise funds for the recovery and reconstruction of Haiti.
