    President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with the president of Haiti Wednesday to discuss disaster relief.
     
    According to CNN.com, President Obama will meet with Haitian President Rene Preval in hopes of establishing a format of recovery and reconstruction for the country of Haiti. 


     
    The White House released a statement regarding the meeting saying that the two will also talk about “how the international community can best support the government of Haiti and the Haitian people as they rebuild and create a foundation for a brighter future.”
     
    The U.S. has already given a whopping $700 million in aid to Haiti. White House representatives stated that it is important for the U.S. to support Haiti. “Haitians are neighbors in the Americas, and Haitian-Americans have made extraordinary contributions to our country," said the White House staff.
     
    Relief to Haiti is being provided to aid in the recovery of a large-scale earthquake that hit on January 12, 2010.
