13-01-2011 Field Newsletter

January's issue is dedicated to the ICRC's work in Haiti. ICRC delegation head Riccardo Conti explains what aid workers are doing to help, we have an update on the ICRC's role in combatting cholera and we visit a little boy named Adems, whom the ICRC succeeded in returning to his family. Finally, there are pictures from just after the earthquake, with first-hand comments on each from ICRC photographer Marko Kokic.

In this issue:

  • Haiti: humanitarian situation still worrying, one year after the earthquake 
  • Haiti: fight against cholera is priority 
  • Haiti: Adems, also known as Samuel, poster child for hope 
  • Remembering the Haiti quake: in photos

... and the latest ICRC news from around the globe.
