Bill Clinton Report From Haiti

Amy, Yesterday I traveled to Haiti to deliver emergency supplies, see the conditions on the ground first-hand, and meet with government officials. I wish you could have seen what I saw. Haitians were performing surgeries at night, without lights, with no anesthesia, using vodka to sterilize equipment. It's astonishing what they've been able to accomplish in such devastating conditions. We delivered the first of the supplies made possible by your support -- generators, gas cans, solar flashlights, bottles of water, food, and medicines. You can be assured that your donations are being put to good use. We've already distributed more than $3 million to 12 organizations on the ground. Only with your continued generosity will we be able to sustain these efforts and save more lives. Please make a donation of any size today: Even after this earthquake, I believe Haiti has the best chance in my lifetime to escape its history -- a history that Hillary and I have been able to share in a small way. It's going to take a lot of help and a long time, but they can build a better future if we do our part. Thank you for your compassion and commitment to the people of Haiti, Bill Clinton
