My PhotoHunt entry for the week follows after this short appeal for the survivors of the Haiti earthquake from the UNICEF-USA. Please do take time to read and respond to the appeal by making your own (additional) contribution if you can.

The UNICEF United States Fund has been distributing more than 150,000 liters of clean water daily for the past several days in order to help make life better for the earthquake survivors in Haiti. According to Caryl Stern, CEO of UNICEF-USA, five truckloads of health and nutrition supplies have flowed into Haiti from the Dominican Republic, as well as 12,000 gallons of fuel just this Wednesday alone. Photos and other blog entries on how UNICEF-USA has been helping Haiti can be found here.

But still, a lot still needs to be done, including:

- Truck safe drinking water to survivors in tent encampments
- Distribute water purification tablets, water containers, hygiene materials, and soap
- Set up temporary water distribution sites
- Start to help rebuild Haiti's water and sanitation infrastructure

No contribution is too small to matter. They need all the help they can get. Today.


Everybody was rushing to get a good spot in front of the Parliament Building to watch what was arguably one of the highlights of the whole Night of the Arts: a performance by the outstanding Australian theater group Strange Fruit. Men and women from the group where doing their acting-cum-dance-cum-circus routines while perched on four-meter-high poles, moving, swaying, swinging perfectly with their musical accompaniment, eliciting not a few oohs and aahs and gasps from the mesmerized crowd gathered below.
