Filipinos Saved in Haiti, Gov't Sends Help

ABS-CBN News, Posted: Jan 16, 2010

PORT-AU-PRINCE The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs [DFA] confirmed that two Filipinos, Grace Fabian and Aurora Aguinaldo, were rescued from the rubble of a collapsed supermarket in the city. DFA spokesman Eduardo Malaya said five Filipinos still await rescue including three Filipino peacekeepers, a UN staff member and a Filipino community worker.

The DFA said the peacekeepers remain trapped under the collapsed Christopher Hotel, which is being used as the headquarters of the UN Stabilization Mission.

The Philippine government said it is sending a group of disaster-tested medical volunteers to help in the rescue and relief operations in Haiti as well as to secure the welfare of 290 Filipinos living and working in the city.
