Wednesday, former President Clinton visited golf club camp of Petion-ville, where live close to 55,000 people. Wearing with his "eternal" blue polo shirt and sneakers, splashing through the mud after rain of the previous day, he went to meet with refugees to hear their grievances and try to reassure them about their future.

"The tents are no longer in place because of torrential rains. We can not continue to live in these terrible conditions", shouted to the former President.

Generally well respected and beloved by Haitians, Bill Clinton shook hands with many young Haitians who gathered around him, Bill Clinton told them what was done to homes and sought to reassure victims often desperate and frustrated that more help was coming. Reminding them that build thousands of new housing to meet the needs of the population would take time. "I listened to what they asked for on the food and said we will try to change that and then we talked about the school and the jobs" entrusted the Special Envoy of the UN.

During his visit Bill Clinton announced a donation of $500,000 from its foundation to the "J/P Haitian Relief Organization", co-founded by actor Sean Penn, who ensures the management and the services of one of the country's largest camp.

After the visit, Bill Clinton met with Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, and attend the third meeting of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC), thwt the two men co-chair.
