CRS Briefs Former Presidents Bush and Clinton in Haiti

During a visit to Haiti yesterday by former U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, CRS Haiti country representative Scott Campbell had an opportunity to brief them on the humanitarian relief effort to date, as you can see from this video clip from the BBC.

Bush and Clinton, who spent a day in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince meeting with various government and humanitarian officials, were asked by President Barack Obama to lead U.S. fundraising after the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake. Together, the two former presidents lead the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, which has raised $37 million for Haiti relief.
