Excerpt from NPR News
Without question, it is extremely difficult to build anything in Haiti. The land title system is archaic and almost nonexistent. And many people don’t realize the government lost almost a third of its workforce, by some estimates, the day of the earthquake. The government was in disarray. But still, in the years since, other charities have managed to do it. Other NGOs have built more than 9,000 permanent homes so far. We saw a project by Global Communities and PCI that’s built over 300 homes so far and is now doing multifamily homes with running water.
