Blue Shield InternationalThe Blue Shield International sent two experts to Port-au-Prince from 11th to 16th of April. Danielle Mincio (IFLA) and Christophe Jacobs (ICA and ANCBS) went there in order to work with our Haitian colleagues.

They have collected all necessary information for the establishment of a Blue Shield center for the treatment of damaged cultural heritage properties.

This was also the opportunity to complete the assessments made previously to quantify the affected collections and various types of treatments which will be offered in this center.
