Haiti Still Struggling, More Aid Coming

Ad Feedback

Former President Bill Clinton has announced $1 million in new grants to promote job growth in Haiti and help the country rebuild.

Clinton traveled to Haiti, Monday, to meet with both the Haitian president and prime minister.

It has been six months since a powerful 7.0 magnitude earthquake killed more than 220,000 people in Haiti and displaced 2 million others.

The nation is still struggling to recover.

Hundreds of trucks work each day to remove rubble, yet 98 percent of the wreckage remains. The number of Haitians in relief camps has also doubled.

In addition to more aid for the country, those Haitians who were illegally in the U.S. when the earthquake hit now have until Jan. 12, 2011 to apply for "temporary protected status," which allows them to stay and work in the U.S. for 18 months.
