Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) traveled to Haiti on Friday to observe the recovery efforts following the massive January earthquake there. 

Corker, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, will meet with Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, Haitian government officials, U.S. Ambassador Kenneth Merten and representatives of the United Nations and USAID, who are assisting relief efforts. 

The GOP senator’s visit comes amid reports that the recovery and reconstruction efforts are lagging behind in the poor island nation. The quake killed over 200,000 people and injured more, while leveling huge portions of the capital city of Port-au-Prince. 

The U.S. has pledged $1.15 billion to the relief effort.
