Bill Clinton, ex-president of the United States and husband of the current U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, met with Colombian president Alvaro Uribe on Wednesday in search of resources for the reconstruction of Haiti.
Also present at the meeting were American ambassador to Colombia William Brownfield, Colombian Ambassador to the United States Carolina Barco, and Colombian Secretary of Foreign Affairs Jaime Bermudez.
While his wife is on a diplomatic tour of various Latin American countries, ex-president Clinton is using the opportunity to raise money for Haiti’s reconstruction following the devastating earthquake that happened there in January of this year. The money is being raised through Clinton’s own charity, the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton will also be taking a look at various projects in Colombia that the Clinton Foundation has helped fund while visiting the country.
