Wisconsin Representative Gwen Moore visits Haiti

Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D), who represents Wisconsin’s 4th District in Washington, traveled to Haiti today as part of a five member bipartisan Congressional Delegation, led by Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA).

The purpose of the trip, according to a press release put out by Moore’s office, is to review and assess the humanitarian assistance that has been ongoing since the January 12th earthquake that devastated that country’s capital city Port-au-Prince and much of the Caribbean nation.

According to the U.S. Agency for International Developmenet (USAID), the U.S. government has contributed more than $636 million in earthquake response funding for Haiti in the month since the earthquake hit. The U.S. Department of Defense support of humanitarian efforts – primarily through transportation of U.S. government personnel and relief commodities into Haiti and the provision of health and medical services – has cost an estimated $255 million. The Obama administration is expected to submit a request to Congress for more funds for the recovery and rebuilding of Haiti.
