Eighty of 120 vulnerable families affected by the August 2021 earthquake in Haiti have received a new home as part of the reconstruction efforts of Jesuits in Haiti. Canadian Jesuits International (CJI) is supporting this project, thanks to the generosity of Canadians.

Two-thirds of the project’s 574 beneficiaries are women. The houses, which have anti-seismic and anti-cyclonic features, are being built in the rural communities in the South and Grand Anse.

The project also provides psychosocial and spiritual support to families affected by the earthquake. It offers workshops on environmental protection, water, energy and waste management.

CJI is still accepting donations to address a budget shortfall in the project.
