UN: Relief Operations Going Well in Tsunami Hit Countries

  • VOA News

UN officials say relief operations are going reasonably well in the Asian and African countries that were hit three weeks ago by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. The December 26th disaster tore across the Indian Ocean from Indonesia to Africa leaving 160,000 people dead and hundreds of thousands others injured or homeless. In New York, the head of the U.N Children's Fund, Carol Bellamy, said in virtually all the countries, except in Indonesia, the hardest hit, the relief efforts are going well. But U.N. officials said no significant outbreaks of disease has been reported in Indonesia. Also Friday, a senior official with the U.S. aid agency (USAID) said 92 million dollars of the 350 million pledged by President Bush to help tsunami victims has already been spent.
