Bill Clinton awards over $700,000 to Haiti farms

A charity for former US President Bill Clinton has awarded more than USD 700,000 to develop the country`s agriculture sector.



Port-Au-Prince (Haiti): A charity for former US President Bill Clinton has awarded more than USD 700,000 to develop the country`s agriculture sector.

The Clinton Foundation announced yesterday that the grants will go toward efforts to plant trees, build a coffee farm and train farmers.

Clinton is the United Nations` special envoy to Haiti. He left Haiti following a two-day visit during which he was accompanied by a delegation of almost two dozen potential investors representing a perfume company, restaurants and a lingerie franchise.

The trip was Clinton`s second this year. He came in January to mark the third anniversary of the earthquake that devastated the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince and other cities in the south.
The government of President Michel Martelly is hoping to lure foreign investors to rebuild the Caribbean nation.
