NEW YORK, Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- See video from UNICEF at:

In the mountain village of Jacquot, near Port-au-Prince, healthcare and education facilities were until recently non-existent. Twelve months after the earthquake that devastated this tiny Caribbean nation, local residents now have both. Sister Marie Benedicte has seen the changes a school and clinic have made in her community. She is not only the administrator of the local community school but also a medical doctor and runs the only clinic for Jaquot's 8,000 inhabitants and others living nearby. The mission provides medical care with a dispensary supported by UNICEF for children and families living in Jaquot and the surrounding villages free of charge. UNICEF is also supporting schools to give children living in rural areas affected by the earthquake a head start on their education. Available video includes a narrated news package and b-roll.
