Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin arrived Saturday in Haiti as part of a brief humanitarian mission in an impoverished nation struggling to overcome post-election violence and a cholera epidemic.
Her first stop was to tour a shelter with Rev. Franklin Graham, whose Samaritan's Purse relief organization helped build temporary houses for those left homeless by January's devastating earthquake.
The potential U.S. presidential candidate also planned to stop by cholera-treatment centers, but Roseann Dennery, a spokeswoman for Samaritan's Purse, said details about Palin's itinerary were not being released for security reasons.
