Challenge

CHF, which has been undertaking one of the largest-funded infrastructure & employment programs in Haiti since 2006 is focusing on recovery and rebuilding efforts within Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas following the earthquake of January, 2010. This disaster caused widespread distruction to the already weak infrastructure in Haiti and millions of people are still living in camps, struggling to support themselves and their families.

Solution

CHF is focusing on the needs of the Haitian people as they transition to long-term recovery through rubble removal projects, building of transitional shelters and cash-for-work programs.

Long-Term Impact

Our commitment to Haiti goes far beyond a response to immediate needs, to genuine redevelopment and long-term sustainable thinking. When headlines fade, we will still partner with the communities to help them direct their own development.
