Haiti Rebuilding Spotlighted at CGI Amid Calls for More Help | onPhilanthropy: "One of the elements in CGI 2010 that has elicited the greatest interest is the recovery effort in Haiti. The destruction resulting from the earthquake has been one of the most challenging, among numerous natural disasters that have occurred in recent years. President Clinton, who had been functioning as a special envoy for Haiti before last January’s earthquake, has co-chaired a philanthropic response with former president George W. Bush. As expected, Clinton took the opportunity at CGI to showcase some of the major elements of the response, which has proceeded at a frustratingly slow pace, and to call for additional support from the private sector."
