On March 2, 2010, Secretary Clinton visited with volunteers supporting relief efforts in the aftermath of the Chilean earthquake. While meeting with Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, Secretary Clinton said, "I first come with the great sympathy and support from President Obama and the people of the United States. This devastating earthquake has wrought so much damage across your country. The ferocity was 800 times greater than the earthquake that hit Haiti, and your leadership and the extraordinary efforts of your government and the people of Chile are responding with resilience and strength. And the United States is ready to respond to the request that the government of Chile has made so that we can provide not only solidarity, but specific supplies that are needed to help you recover from the earthquake."
