The William J. Clinton Foundation is donating half a million dollars to the J/P Haitian Relief Organization founded by Sean Penn.According to the former president, the money will help provide health care, education and job training to tens of thousands of people displaced by the quake that struck Haiti in January.

The actor's organization manages a refugee camp in Port-au-Prince and is working to relocate its 55,000 residents.

The group also provides counseling, educational seminars and medical services.

Penn praised his mostly Haitian staff Friday for earning Clinton's faith and performing "heroic and vital services."
