Sitting in a makeshift office off the main road, four days after a massive earthquake hit, Beaumont Mayor Marcel Fortuné tells a Habitat for Humanity Haiti disaster response team that he is still coming to grips with how much the city has lost. And how much work lies ahead in rebuilding.
Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures undertaken by Habitat to ensure the safety of everyone with whom we work, our volunteers set out to use their skills in new, creative and socially distanced ways.
The need for global housing is so vast and the issues that surround it are so complex that Habitat works in many ways to partner with families and communities to create sustainable and sweeping change. That’s how we will realize our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
