    Salesian Missions has been working in Haiti since 1936 and provided food to 25,000 children in Port-au-Prince before the earthquake in addition to the schools it operated for hundreds of children. The search for survivors has ended, but Salesian Missions is desperately working to and care for those who are homeless and suffering, with special attention to the 20,000 children in the area it already served. A vast Salesian Missions compound in the Cite Soleil (which consisted of schools, trade shops, housing, orphanages, youth centers, feeding programs and administrative offices) was almost completely destroyed. 200 students and staff were killed in the rubble. Buildings destroyed include those at ENAM, the renowned National School of Arts & Trades, where a vast majority of the deaths took place. Kitchens that fed 25,000 of the city’s poorest children daily have been affected. Reconstruction efforts have begun but more assistance is needed: Photos:http://picasaweb.google.com/Neillsalesianmissions/TheHaitiEmergencyReliefAndReconstructionDatabase?feat=directlink%20%3Cfront%3E#5464906330270149074
