PORT-AU-PRINCE: Former US president Bill Clinton said on Thursday that his foundation would provide more than $1 million to help thousands of Haitian students with their schooling.
“My foundation is going to make a grant of $1.25 million to the Haitian Ministry of Education to insure that 10,000 more children will be able to attend primary school, and get a big meal every day while they are there,” Clinton said at a ceremony in which he was decorated by Haitian President Michel Martelly.
