The Temporary Commission for Haiti's Reconstruction (CIRH) on Tuesday approved 13 developing projects for some 200 million U.S. dollars, local press said.

According to information reaching here from Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital, the programs will be for the health sector and housing of thousands of homeless due to the earthquake of last year.

The CIRH is headed by Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive and U.S. former president Bill Clinton, who during a meeting urged a better coordination between the government organization and the non-governmental organizations responsible for the projects.

Bellevire said that the CIRH "works to support the actions of the government and it is a guarantee for Haiti's sovereignty."

"It is the first time we can have clear data on the amount of money that the international donators are giving to invest in different regions of Haiti," he said.

He also said that the CIRH "cannot and should not stop its works" despite the approach of the 2nd round of presidential elections.
