Wyclef recently went to Haiti to help out.

Jean gave out bags of rice and beans and cans of cooking oil to hundreds of Haitians near the town of Cabaret on Saturday. At one point, the truck they were in got stuck in a ditch, so they handed out the food on the roadside.  The Haitian-born Jean, who founded his own Yele Haiti charity, was the star of the day – hardly anybody in the crowd recognized Matt Damon who went along with Jean.Later, at a church where 600 people who were left homeless by Hurricane Ike were sheltered,  Jean ladled out rice with vegetable sauce. Jean said he hoped more people will donate to United Nations relief efforts to help the impoverished nation recover from four devastating storms in the past month.
