Former US president Bill Clinton has praised Canada’s efforts in earthquake devastated Haiti, both through financial contributions and on-the-ground efforts, according to The Canadian Press.

Besides leading an international meeting for long-term strategic planning in Haiti, the Canadian government promised $100 million for relief, to match all individual donations made by mid-February (already passing $80 million by the end of January) and 2,000 military personnel.

The UN’s special envoy for Haiti, Clinton said, “It has been unbelievable. I’ll bet you on a per capita basis, [Canadians] are number one in the world now in helping Haiti. There is a big Haitian diaspora in Canada but this goes way beyond that. I’m very grateful.”
