Falklands Help for Chile and Haiti
A meeting has been held in the Falklands with the aim of helping victims of the Chilean earthquake and launching a fundraising appeal. Many members of the Chilean community in the Falklands were grateful to TV broadcasters KTV, who streamed a live Chilean news channel into Falklands homes at no extra cost. The Falklands Haiti Earthquake Appeal fund has now reached £11,000, including £5,000 donated by the Falkland Islands Government towards a temporary shelter scheme.
