The rumor mill is spinning- straight outta Wyclef Jean‘s Camp- that The Fugees’ front man may run for President of Haiti. I can dig it. He’d better get a move on. The elections are Nov. 28th, and one must register by Aug. 7 if one wants to be a candidate. Wyclef LOVES his homeland, and if you’ve followed his career all these years you’d know it. The earthquake only intensified his efforts for the country, and today he is still crusading to make sure they get proper aid in the restoration of the country. His star power will ONLY help to keep Haitian issues on Blast! Go ‘Clef, Go! Source

There is even a facebook page dedicted to nominating Wyclef to be the President. Check it out here…

Check out what Wyclef said about being president of Haiti in 2007…

Who knows, he could have changed his mind by now.

As much as he is doing for Haiti one would think he was the President already…

Yéle Launches Major Job Creation Program

PORT-AU-PRINCE, July 12, 2010 – Wyclef announced the creation of Yéle Corps, a new program that will provide jobs to nearly 1,000 people a day cleaning the streets and removing garbage. The program also includes a vocational training component. Nearly 1,000 people attended a Yéle Corps rally at the Place St. Pierre tent camp where Wyclef addressed the first 200 workers to be signed up for the program when it begins operation in the next month. Yéle has received major financial support for this new initiative from the “Hope for Haiti Now Fund,” with secondary support from the BET telethon “SOS Saving OurSelves.”

Yéle Partnering With Project Medishare

PORT-AU-PRINCE, July 12, 2010 – Wyclef presented a check to Project Medishare for the purchase of the first high-resolution CT scanner in Haiti, which will be available to patients regardless of their financial resources. The device will have its own trailer and generator power source and will be installed at Bernard Mevs Project Medishare Hospital in Port-au-Prince, a nonprofit institution working closely with the Haitian Ministry of Health. This technology will allow rapid diagnosis and effective treatment to prevent unnecessary deaths from major heart attacks, strokes, major trauma and maternal emergencies. “It’s important that Project Medishare and Yéle Haiti are partnering at this time to provide the Haitian people with life-saving technology that will be operational within a few weeks,” Dr. Barth Green, president and co-founder of Project Medishare said. “On the six-month anniversary, Project Medishare and Yéle Haiti are working together in a promise to continue improving access to healthcare for all Haitians.”
