FUTURE humanitarian relief sent to Haiti will be coordinated through a committee set up by the Department of International Relations, the department said yesterday.

"Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane has pronounced on the establishment of a ministerial committee to lead, integrate and consolidate all relief activities by various institutions in South Africa aimed at supporting Haiti," it said.

The committee will launch a province-based campaign to raise money and donations for the benefit of Haiti "to be collected and shipped to reach Haiti on April 27, 2010 - South Africa's Freedom Day," it said. "The country has always inspired us during our struggle, and gave us hope that we shall overcome apartheid," she said.

The committee will be headed by the department's Deputy Minister Sue van der Merwe, and will include deputy ministers of Social Development, Health, Cooperative Governance, Arts and Culture and Defence. - Sapa
