Former President George W. Bush, who has stayed out of the limelight since leaving office in early 2009, is to visit Haiti on Tuesday to check up on quake relief efforts.

Republican Bush and his Democratic predecessor, Bill Clinton, have teamed up to help raise money for victims of the January 12 earthquake that killed an estimated 230,000 people.

Bush will view progress made on rebuilding after the quake, hear from Haitian citizens regarding the current conditions in their country, and visit with organizations that are assisting in the rebuilding effort, Bush spokesman David Sherzer said.

"President Bush's trip will draw attention to the great ongoing need in Haiti, and he will encourage Americans to continue to give what they can to help their neighbors in need," said Sherzer.

Bush has kept a low profile since leaving Washington, traveling occasionally for speeches but mostly working on his presidential memoir to be published later this year.
