Clinton Foundation donates to Penn Haitian charity
LOS ANGELES — The William J. Clinton Foundation is donating half a million dollars to the J/P Haitian Relief Organization founded by Sean Penn.
The former president says the money will help provide health care, education and job training to tens of thousands of people displaced by the earthquake that struck Haiti in January.
Penn’s organization manages a refugee camp in Port-au-Prince and is working to relocate its 55,000 residents. The group also provides medical services, counseling and educational seminars.
Penn praised his mostly Haitian staff Friday for earning Clinton’s faith and performing “heroic and vital services.”
