Build Change's Response to Hurricane Matthew Crisis

Operational Summary: 

We have been working in Haiti since 2010 as a leading implementer in homeowner-driven retrofitting and reconstruction. Our Haiti team is now conducting damage assessments in affected communities and working with government counterparts to prepare and deploy resources for safe rebuilding of roofs and damaged homes.

In the coming weeks we will continue to engage in long-term technical assistance and training activities that will empower homeowners and local builders to rebuild safely. We will also support agencies funding retrofitting and reconstruction of houses with guidance on homeowner-driven methodologies and safe construction practice so houses and schools are rebuilt in a culturally appropriate way using local materials and labor.
