I just met with Elisabeth Préval, Haiti's First Lady, to discuss our Comfort for Kids program. Mrs. Préval is an ardent supporter of the rights and well-being of Haiti's children. Through Comfort for Kids, Mercy Corps is responding to the critical needs of Haiti's youngest earthquake survivors by training local psychologists, teachers and other caregivers to help children move past their trauma to a less fearful and more hopeful future.

We're excited to have had this opportunity to talk with Mrs. Préval and are looking forward to working together to help heal Haiti's children.
