Penned in

Sean Penn has denied rumours that he was going to pull his JP Haitian Relief Organisation out of Haiti, saying that he is committed to helping the country become a stable state.

Penn said in an interview with Fox News that his organisation will be in Haiti for decades if necessary, and plans to be there long after the clean up job has been finished.

‘I don't think there has even been a published or discussed exit strategy. If there is one, it would only live in my head,’ he said. ‘In one mutation or another, this is going to be a several-decades-long organisation, and it may develop into something entirely different over time.

‘(At the moment) rubble removal is the key thing. But obviously if something like what just happened with the cholera outbreak keeps happening, and this becomes a widespread outbreak, then we need to focus on that.’
