IFLA and the Prince Claus Fund sign contract to help preserve Haitian cultural heritage

On 17 March 2011 Christa Meindersma, the recently appointed Director of the Prince Claus Fund for Culture & Development and IFLA Secretary General Jennefer Nicholson signed a contract that will enable joint action to save Haiti's still vulnerable archives and important library collections. Thanks to the support of ICCO and Kerk in Actie, the Prince Claus Fund is providing € 242,500 for the restoration of these important documents through the establishment of a treatment centre (Ark) in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. This contribution will in turn create a solid foundation for a crucial part of Haiti's overall cultural reconstruction. IFLA will coordinate the disbursement of these funds
