By Sarah Rejouis
Former U.S. President and special U.N. envoy to Haiti Bill Clinton visits the Haiti Hotel School in Port-au-Prince, Monday, Sept. 17, 2012. On the same day, Clinton made a joint announcement with Qatar’s ambassador that the Middle Eastern nation will give $20 million to Haiti



Haiti will receive $20 million from Qatar, according to an announcement made by former U.S. president Bill Clinton and Qatar’s Ambassador Mohammed Bin Abdulla al-Rumaihi Monday in Port-au-Prince. The money will be made available through a special fund that will help the struggling nation in the areas of health, education and housing.


“This $20 million the Qatar Fund has pledged to support long-term recovery in five important areas with very strong partners in each is profoundly important,” Clinton said. “And I hope will set an example for other donors who have committed funds but have not been specific yet when they will deliver how much money. The Qataris have kept their word and done it in an intelligent, forward-looking way for which I am very grateful.”
