PORT-AU-PRINCE - International aid donors should not forget the plight of 600,000 earthquake survivors still living in a critical situation in camps in Haiti, the top UN humanitarian official said on Thursday.

On a visit to the poor Caribbean state that is still struggling to rebuild from a destructive January 2010 earthquake, Valerie Amos said she was concerned that Haiti's remaining humanitarian needs might be neglected by rich countries grappling with problems in their own economies.

Other disasters such as the drought and famine affecting millions in the Horn of Africa also demanded attention.
