Haven is working in Haiti to build communities by providing shelter, emergency relief, and by implementing community development programmes.
In 2011, Volunteers at Habitat for Humanity;s 28th annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project - along with volunteers from Haven - helped build 155 permanenet houses in the Santo community of Leogane, Haiti, about 18 miles from Port-au-Prince and considered to be the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake.
This year, the Carter Woek Project returns to Haiti, November 24th - December 1st. The project is part of a larger Habitat shelter program funded by the Multilateral Investment Fund of the Inter- American Development Bank and many other donors. Similar to last year, Haven will manage all Carter Work Project logistics, including catering, accomodations and transport throughout the week.
In addition, I will be 1 of 90 volunteers travelling from both Ireland and the US to Haiti with Haven to help build houses on this Novembers Build it Week charity trip. I will be living in basic accomodation, sleeping in tents, on camp beds and working long hours outdoors alongside a local Haitan workforce. Any donations towards my fundraising efforts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance for your kind consideration,
