Habitat for Humanity Canada and Rayjon Share Care of Sarnia joined their respective expertise and experience in shelter, healthcare and community development to support effectively the structural and social regeneration of Simon Pele, a low-income, high density area of Port-au-Prince that was greatly affected by the 2010 earthquake. This project aims to repair and retrofit close to 700 homes that were damaged during the earthquake and provide households with sanitation and basic infrastructure. The project also aims to strengthen community capacity to deal with neighbourhood, environmental and health shocks and stresses. This is being accomplished through the provision of training, the creation of job opportunities and the delivery of healthcare services.
