FIFA grants Haiti $3m
World football's governing body FIFA on Friday granted Haiti's beleaguered footballing community an additional three million dollars following the devastating quake there last month.
FIFA said its finance committee had approved a fund to rebuild footballing facilities on top of the 250,000 dollars in emergency aid it released earlier.
"Just like everyone else, I was deeply moved by the reports coming from Haiti," FIFA President Sepp Blatter said in a statement.
"We will continue to evaluate the situation very closely with the Haitian Football Association and will do everything in our power to assist them in their hour of need."
The fund would help rebuild the football association's headquarters, regional youth facilities and provide basic equipment for local competitions.
