PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton says he and former President George W. Bush will work to make the most of the huge global outpouring of support for earthquake-devastated Haiti.
Clinton says they want to get “the whole universe of people who want to help Haiti operating on the same page.”
The former presidents today toured the capital of Port-Au-Prince, the grounds of the collapsed national palace and walked through a tent city filled with 60,000 homeless quake survivors.
Bush told reporters he wanted to see the devastation first hand. He said he hopes the visit “will remind people that Haiti needs help.”
President Barack Obama named the two former leaders to head the U.S. fundraising effort. Clinton, who is the U.N. special envoy to Haiti, has made two visits since the quake.
