Rebuilding Haiti

Thursday, January 14, 2010

With so much of Haiti destroyed in Tuesday’s earthquake, much will need to be rebuilt — with very limited resources. Cameron Sinclair, executive director of Architecture for Humanity, is well-versed in the challenges ahead.

Sinclaire's organization, which regularly works in disaster-afflicted areas, has people on the ground in Haiti now, assessing the damage and determining what local materials can be used to rebuild Port-au-Prince and the surrounding areas. He talks with us about what’s ahead and the challenges they face.

How do we get involved in rebuilding Haiti? I am a not for profit building company. We build schools, churches & orphanages. We have volunteers from our church families all around the world. We are a christian organization.

First, let me say thank you to the american people and the citizen of the world for coming the aid of Haiti - my native contry. Could you / your organization see that the shanty towns around P-auP arent rebuilt? This is an opportunity to redesign a modern city , green city with some trees

You asked -whose responsibility is it to rebuild Haiti?

"To whom much is given, much is expected." That means us in the USA.
