We're moving forward but it's going to take some time; this is a long process," Roshan Khadivi, a spokeswoman for UNICEF in Port-au-Prince, told the UN News Centre.
"For teenagers, it's easy for them to describe where they lived, but for babies it is much more difficult," Ms. Khadivi
An older child can speak but babies can become victims," Ms. Khadivi
This is an issue raised at the highest level in the Haitian Government, with our partners and with the international community," said Ms. Khadivi
"We are sending a message to the international community that while some adoptions have already been approved, we are asking everyone to hold off and let us register these children, and - if possible - to connect them with their communities," Ms. Khadivi
"There are families who are afraid of sending kids to school because they're afraid there will be another quake," Ms. Khadivi
said that she
hoped the return to school, along with an immunization programme UNICEF
planned to launch this week against measles, diphtheria and tetanus, would give families a greater sense of normalcy.
"What I find amazing," Ms. Khadivi
said, "[is that] people are shaken, but we have come across people who have not lost hope.
They are working.
