About The Clinton Foundation

President Clinton and the Clinton Foundation have a long history of engagement and involvement in Haiti. The Clinton Foundation works in partnership with the government of Haiti to strengthen healthcare systems and decrease the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and other diseases. After a series of hurricanes ravaged the nation in 2008, President Clinton made a Call to Action for Haiti at CGI's 2008 Annual Meeting. Members responded with over $100 million worth of commitments to help Haiti "build back better." President Clinton was named UN Special Envoy for Haiti in 2009 to assist its people and government as they "build back better" from storm damages and implement their economic vision for the future. President Clinton traveled to Haiti three times in 2009.

In the immediate aftermath of the January earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince, President Clinton established the Clinton Foundation Haiti Fund to support relief efforts. Less than a week after the earthquake, President Clinton traveled to Haiti to deliver food, water, and supplies, made available through the Fund. He also met with Haitian officials and U.S. troops, and toured the General Hospital in Port-au-Prince. The Clinton Foundation Haiti Fund has already distributed $3 million in donations.
