Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is ceasing their activities in Haiti

Initiated by American president Barack Obama in 2010 as an organization that would help rebuild Haiti, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund announced that they will cease their activities in Haiti on December 31.

 

They announced on their website: "Having served as a bridge from post-disaster relief to longer-term reconstruction, we are stepping back, empowering Haiti to chart its own successful future."

 

Beginning with December 7th, the Fund no longer accepts donations or new project proposals, and will commit its remaining funds this month.
