Haiti

Your Excellency:

I am deeply saddened by the loss of so many lives and property as a result of the earthquake that struck the capital city Port-au-Prince on Tuesday.

I extend my sympathy and heartfelt condolences to all those families who have been directly affected by what I understand is the worst quake in two centuries in the history of Haiti.

I offer my prayers for those who have lost their lives in this tragedy and condolences to their families and others affected by this natural disaster.

With my prayers.

The Dalai Lama
