THE Media Association Jamaica Limited (MAJ) yesterday offered to help Haiti in establishing an emergency radio broadcasting system in the earthquake-wrecked capital, Port-au-Prince.

The MAJ, in a press release yesterday, said it advised the minister with responsibility for information, Daryl Vaz, to make an offer to Haitian authorities for the assistance with the emergency radio broadcasting system.

"Several of the radio members of the association have agreed to combine efforts to put together a small studio and FM transmitter system to re-establish some type of radio information system in Haiti," the MAJ said.

The association said the minister had agreed that on the trip by Prime Minister Bruce Golding yesterday afternoon, the offer would be made and a response provided to the MAJ.

The MAJ members also said they would provide the technical support at short notice to get the project going.
