Presiding Bishop Letter to President Obama RE: Haitian Debt Cancellation - 2009

On behalf of the Episcopal Church, I write to thank you for your Administration’s decision to devote $20 million to service the remaining debt payments owed by Haiti to
the World Bank and other international lenders. I am proud and pleased that the United States has offered to alleviate this significant obstacle to Haiti’s ability to fight the
crushing poverty and suffering of its people.
