Haitian President visits David Lubin Memorial Library

Haitian President Michel Joseph Martelly met with FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva, yesterday, 22 November, 2012.

FAO and the government of Haiti are seeking $74 million over the next 12 months to help rehabilitate the country's agricultural sector in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Tropical Storm Isaac, and a drought that occurred earlier this year.

After their meeting, both men visited the library for a tour with Patricia Merrikin, Head Librarian.
