Dear Haiti Friends,

Here’s an article from today’s Haitian times about the UN’s deployment of police support to Haiti:

As you can see, “high level meetings” are being held while the Kenyan Parliament and judicial system wrangle over a lawsuit brought by an unsuccessful presidential candidate to stop the sending of Kenyans to Haiti.  Forces from several other countries are also committed, but would serve under the direction of the Kenyans, so nothing will happen until this is resolved.

Several of you have mentioned that you have made use of the Haiti shopping list I attached to the last note.  People in Haiti will have a better December as a direct result of our orders.  Mesi anpil!  (Thank you very much.)
