Statement by Jet Li, WHO Goodwill Ambassador

14 January 2010

I am deeply saddened by the news of the terrible disaster in Haiti. As a WHO Goodwill Ambassador, I would like to express my sincere condolences to those who have lost loved ones, and urge citizens worldwide to aid the disaster victims in ways that they can.

In addition, I want to thank those brave men and women who are fighting to rescue the victims and urge them, as well as everyone else, to stay safe during this time of hardship. While many have already given to help with the relief work, much more is needed, and it will take the strength of the global family to save lives and rebuild homes.
