18/01/2010Dutch aid ship arrives in Haiti

The Dutch naval vessel Hr. Ms. Pelikaan has arrived in Haiti and is expected to dock in PortauPrince shortly.

The 77 military personnel on board will provide support for relief workers in Haiti. The ship is also carrying humanitarian aid and is able to produce drinking water on board. The Pelikaan is a transport and communication vessel permanently stationed in the Caribbean region.

The Dutch government has so far set aside 3.3 million euros for Haiti, matching donations made by the Dutch public as of Saturday.

On Thursday 21 January, many Dutch radio and TV stations will join together for a day of fundraising for earthquake victims. In the evening, public TV channel Nederland 1 and commercial channels RTL4 and SBS6 the three mostwatched channels in the country will present a joint programme. A similar media event was held in January 2005 in response to the Asian tsunami.
