On August 14, 2021, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Southern Haiti, damaging homes, schools, churches, and healthcare facilities in its tracks. Within hours, the BHI team mobilized, helping to secure resources and provide structural assessments. While none of the 60+ infrastructure projects that BHI completed in Haiti prior to the earthquake sustained any significant damage, in the earthquake's aftermath our team's attention turned to working with partners and community organizations to restore and rebuild health infrastructure impacted by the earthquake.
In the the 8 months following the earthquake, drawing upon our Haitian led workforce of laborers, electricians, and seismic engineers, BHI is working with a handful of health clinics on Haiti’s Southern Peninsula to rebuild and restore infrastructure that was impacted by the earthquake. As we assist in building back, our team is again drawing upon lessons learned from two major earthquakes and over a decade of experience in Haiti, to ensure the new facilities will be resilient in the face of disaster.
