  3. 3. A half-century behind us – and aheadFor Terre des hommes, 2010 was a year of cruel paradoxes. We celebrated our 50 th anniversary whilstbringing aid to the children of Haiti who had escaped one of the worst earthquakes in history. In the midstof this work in the field, we also had to plan the strategies we want to follow up to 2015.Let›s mention Haiti first of all, because many people have wanted to criticise the humanitarian aid giventhere. From the very beginning, our teams mobilised their forces, and reinforcements set out. more than80,000 disaster-stricken people were given shelters, vital commodities, water points. Our colleaguesbrought services – in particular sanitation – to the outlying regions, to save the families there making anew exodus to the major roads and to the overcrowded camps. Visits made to and good relationshipswith some fifty orphanages and schools made it possible to protect a thousand youngsters better againstexploitation and trafficking.In parallel, together we decided on our strategy plan for over thirty countries for the five years ahead. Facedwith growing inequality, with climatic instability and natural disasters, faced with disregard for children,Tdh sets up the most sustainable outcome possible. We focus our activities in eight domains for childrenand their communities. From now on we will be advocating six causes, chosen from our experience andknow-how. Our simplified strategic plan is available in the three Swiss national languages and in English,Arabian and Spanish.Nearly seventy events marked our 50 th anniversary celebrations, in Switzerland and abroad. Donors, vol-unteers, Tdh employees – once more they made all the difference: all of them contributed to changing theeveryday life of 1.4 million children and their families, and we are more than grateful to them.Christian HAFNER Peter BREyPresident CEO
