To allow French families to go in Haiti for seek the children in course of adoption, and given the uncertainty over the commercial flights, two planes were specially chartered. They will leave Paris to Port-au-Prince on December 21 and 23.

Thursday, the collective SOS Haiti adopted children had asked France to charter planes to evacuate in emergency the childrens, arguing that the cholera epidemic continued to grow in Haiti, where political turmoil and riots are a risk for childrens. The chartering operation was decided after several interdepartmental meetings. Its cost was not specified. "It clearly illustrates our commitment to ensure appropriate support, humane and effective, of steps towards adoption of children of Haiti" argued Michele Alliot-Marie.

Children will be routed through our Embassy with the support of the Haitian authorities and MINUSTAH, under secure conditions, up to the point of regrouping where the families will wait, before joining the airport.

During the return to France, children and their foster families will be joined by members of the Crisis Centre of the MAE, the Adoption Service International (SAI) and a medical-psychological framework adapted to the situation and age of children said the Foreign Minister.

On arrival in Paris, families and children will be greeted by a medical device and personal representatives of different departments to facilitate the initial formalities of adopting families in the national territory.

This exceptional operation, led by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, benefits from the contribution of the Ministry of Health, Ministries of Interior and Defense, the Ministry of National Cohesion and Solidarity, and the Red Cross.
