ArcelorMittal, through the ArcelorMittal Foundation, announces a donation of 1 million USD to help the relief efforts in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, following the earthquake that struck the island on Tuesday 12 January.

More than 100,000 people may have been killed by this 7.0-magnitude earthquake. Tens of thousands are estimated to be in need of urgent assistance.

As in previous similiar situations, ArcelorMittal is ready to help. In a first step the Company announced already two days after this natural disaster to support an emergency intervention from the organisation Médecins sans frontières (MSF) in Port-au-Prince. A donation of 100,000 USD aims to address the needs of the persons affected by the earthquake.

Today the Company increases its aid to a total of 1 million USD. This donation will be given in both cash and kind, offering assistance in new housing projects to rebuild Haiti. ArcelorMittal is also encouraging its employees to support other local initiatives in the country.

Commenting, Mr. Lakshmi Mittal, Chairman & CEO of ArcelorMittal, said: "The painful images and news of the earthquake in Haiti have shocked us all. The scale of the devastation is beyond comprehension. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to all the people affected by this tragedy. I hope with our help, and the help of others, that we will be able to bring support in rebuilding the country and aid those who have suffered."
