Bill Clinton "will continue" to work to Haiti despite its operation

NEW YORK, February 12, 2010 (AFP) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton, who underwent heart surgery Thursday, acted Friday in a statement it would continue its efforts to help Haiti recover from the earthquake of January 12 .
"In my role as Special Envoy of the UN in Haiti, I will continue to work with the Government and people of Haiti, international donors and multilateral organizations," Mr. Clinton wrote in a statement issued hours after that he left the hospital.

Mr. Clinton underwent Thursday angioplasty, a surgical technique for treating arterial occlusions.

Besides its function as special envoy of the UN in Haiti, it has also been charged by U.S. President Barack Obama to coordinate American aid to that country, together with ex-President George W. Bush.

Mr. Clinton said that "significant and generous donations from around the world" have been made to Haiti, and that it co-manages the fund with George W.

Bush and his own foundation (Clinton Foundation Haiti Relief Fund) have received an amount "impressive".

"So far, we have allocated seven million dollars to organizations providing medical care, food, water, shelter and education," he said, stressing the ability of Haiti to do "so much with so little."
