Helping Haiti

Helping Haiti

It has been reported that 3 million people (about a third of Haiti’s population) have been affected by the recent earthquake. With that number expected to climb as the days progress, the number of casualties will be somewhere nearing 50,000. Many countries are supplying immediate help as millions of dollars, and tons of food, water and medical supplies are rapidly being delivered to the small country.

It is important that as the weeks and the months pass, we continue to think about how we can get involved and help. Organizations such as Architecture for Humanity have already brainstormed ideas and developed a timeline which outlines their relief strategy. There is little doubt that Habitat for Humanity will be bringing teams of volunteers to help rebuild.

As architects, but also as people, we have the power to drastically improve the situation. Our thoughts will continue to be with Haiti during these times and we should try to supply any kind of assistance in the next few days, weeks, months and years.
