The Haïtian Consortium is shocked and deeply saddened by the news that a school, located near Pétionville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince, and populated by a student body of nearly 700, has collapsed suddenly this morning while classes were in session.  The death toll has risen to 30 so far, and is expected to grow.  Dozens more of seriously wounded students, teachers and other adults have been taken to area hospitals.

 The Haitian Consortium has already deployed a team of 20 volunteers, well trained members of its Rapid Deployment Disaster Response Team, to participate in the on-going Search and Rescue operation.  In addition, the Haitian Consortium has made available, immediately, monetary funds to assist the families of the victims.  More targeted assistance will follow soon, including Grief Specialists, to help victims and their families face the trauma and losses generated by this tragedy.

 The Haitian Consortium shares the sorrow of all who lost loved ones, expresses its condolences, and offers its prayers and comfort to families and friends affected by this tragic event. 

 The Haitian Consortium calls on the Preval administration to deploy, without delay, Construction Safety Code Inspectors to insure that school buildings are safe for our children, our most valuable national resource.
