Relief and Assistance for
Victims of the Earthquake in Haiti, 2010
USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service is working with other
government agencies to provide assistance in the recovery from the earthquake
that struck Haiti, January 12, 2010. Much of that assistance involves providing
emergency food supplies made possible by the great productivity of U.S. farms.
Beyond the emergency activities and supplies, the FAS international development
staff will be involved with other U.S. government agencies in planning for the
longer term reconstruction and development of the devastated regions.
