Czech government offers Haiti rescue teams and emergency aid

The Czech government is offering quake-hit Haiti rescue teams and financial aid. Prime Minister Jan Fischer said on Thursday that the Czech Republic was ready to send its rescue teams with sniffer dogs as well as emergency aid and was waiting to hear from the authorities in Haiti. The European Commission is to debate coordinated financial aid to Haiti on Friday and the Czech government is expected to make a decision on financial aid at its upcoming session on Monday. Meanwhile Czech charity organizations are mobilizing funds and workers to help the victims of Tuesday’s devastating earthquake.
