THE BLOCKS OF HOPE PROGRAM
+ 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; without running water or septic systems.
+ The average number of Haitians living in a 400 square foot dwelling is 7.
