LONDON - Sean Penn’s charity efforts in Haiti have got a major boost with former U.S. President Bill Clinton donating 334,000 pounds to the actor’s cause.
‘The Milk’ star founded the J/P HRO Haitian Relief Organization in the wake of the January (10) earthquake and has spent months helping to rebuild the Caribbean nation.
The Clinton Foundation’s donation will go towards a camp in Petionville, which is run by the Oscar winner’s group.
“The support of President Clinton and the Clinton Foundation is an extraordinary boost in our organisation’s ability to continue its work in Haiti,” the Daily Express quoted Penn as telling People.com.
“From the beginning the Clinton Foundation staff and leadership have generously shared expertise and essential logistical support,” he added. (ANI)
