Sean Penn urges help for Haiti hospitals
London: Sean Penn has called for more assistance at hospitals in Haiti to help the earthquake-ravaged nation deal with the upcoming hurricane season next month.
The ‘Milk’ star has been constantly on the lookout to ensure that the devastated people’s nation receives all the help they can get following the tremor, which killed hundreds of thousands of citizens in January this year.
Penn drew US Senate committee’s attention towards the healthcare Haiti needs on an immediate basis, as several hospital have been closed down - and he fears the nation will be overrun with emergencies once hurricane season begins.
"In many cases, the bureaucracy of international aid is protecting people to death. I come here today in the hope that we will address with bold clarity the razor’s edge upon which Haiti lies," The Daily Express quoted him as saying.
