Ad Feedback

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Rev. Franklin Graham will travel to Haiti this weekend to help aid in ongoing humanitarian efforts in the island nation.

The two will be visiting a cholera clinic and other relief sites. Palin's husband, Todd Palin, will also accompany his spouse on the trip.

The three will be traveling as a part of Graham's Samaritan's Purse, a charity aid organization.

A cholera outbreak has killed more than 2,000 people in Haiti, a country that is still recovering from a devastating earthquake earlier this year and is in the midst of a disputed presidential election.

Graham said he appreciates Palin's willingness to visit Haiti during such troubled times.

"I believe Gov. Palin will be a great encouragement to the people of Haiti and to the organizations, both government and private, working so hard to provide desperately needed relief," he said in a statement.

Graham heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, founded by his father, Rev. Billy Graham.

His Samaritan's Purse has maintained a presence in Haiti, treating thousands of people, building a cholera clinic, and bringing in plane loads of medical aid, according to the organization's website.
