IN HAITI…

  • Since the earthquake, many people are still living in makeshift housing.
  • Poor living conditions leave people open to elements like rain, disease, and crime.
  • Most houses cost around $6,000 to build and can take a family around 10 years to save up and build.
  • Almost every living condition in Haiti is unsanitary and has no running water or septic systems.
  • An average of 7 Haitians live in each 400 square foot dwelling.
