Former President of the US Bill Clinton recently returned from a visit to Haiti where he met with Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellervie to devise a plan to help the earthquake-ravaged country.
Clinton announced at a meeting of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission in the capital Port-au-Prince, more than $1.6 billion in projects to assist in rebuilding the country.
A lot of the projects' focus will go towards rebuilding the health and education sectors devastatingly effected by the earthquake.
The multibillion-dollar funding will come from foreign donors throughout the world.
Part of Clinton's focus on this trip was to make sure donors who pledged such large amount followed through with their promises.
Last January's earthquake killed over 300,000 people.
Foreign governments, multilateral bodies and non-governmental groups from around the world in March pledged $9.9 billion for Haiti's reconstruction, $5.3 billion for the next two years alone.
