BAHFH recently contributed approx. $6000 to the Habitat for Humanity International Tithe Program for use in Haiti. On January 12, 2010, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0 struck that Caribbean nation damaging nearly 190,000 houses. As we mark the 5th anniversary of that disaster, Habitat for Humanity has helped 55,335 families — approximately 276,675 individuals in Port-au-Prince, Léogâne, Simon-Pelé and Cabaret — through its disaster recovery program and subsequent community development activities. Habitat has committed to continue helping families affected by the earthquake along their pathways to permanent housing, and has focused its efforts on long-term community development, reconstruction and retrofits, training, and capacity building in the Port-au-Prince neighborhood of Simon-Pelé.
