MEDIA ADVISORY: PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH TO TRAVEL TO HAITI
President George W. Bush will travel to Haiti on Tuesday, August 10. While there, he will view progress made on rebuilding after the January earthquake, hear from Haitian citizens regarding the current conditions in their country, and visit with organizations that are assisting in the rebuilding effort and have been supported by the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded after Haiti’s January 12, 2010 earthquake, when President Barack Obama asked Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush to lead a major fundraising effort to assist the Haitian people. The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund primarily focuses on longer-term, sustainable economic reconstruction designed to help the people of Haiti rebuild by creating jobs and promoting economic opportunity.
President Bush’s trip will draw attention to the great ongoing need in Haiti, and he will encourage Americans to continue to give what they can to help their neighbors in need.
