You've seen the devastation of the recent earthquakes in Haiti - now, more than ever, the people of Haiti need our help.

The people of Haiti live in extreme poverty and their housing situation is in a crisis. Natural disasters, including hurricanes, floods, droughts, and earthquakes have had serious effects on the housing situation as well.

The poor live in tents or dilapidated shacks made of cardboard, plastic, tin, or whatever materials can be scavenged from the garbage. These structures barely provide protection against the elements and children frequently fall ill from the appalling conditions. A luxury for these people would be a cement house with solid walls, zinc-sheet roofs that don't leak, doors that lock, and floors that don't turn to mud every time it rains.

Your tiny houses can be sold and the money donated to an organization that builds houses for the Haitian people.



The "Haiti Houses" project was created by Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan,former Art teachers at Monarch High School Coconut Creek, FL. For more info, please contact us.
