Rebuild & Repair Health Infrastructure in Haiti

On August 14, 2021, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Southern Haiti, damaging homes, schools, churches, and healthcare facilities in its tracks. Within hours, the BHI team mobilized, helping to secure resources and provide structural assessments. While none of the 60+ infrastructure projects that BHI completed in Haiti prior to the earthquake sustained any significant damage, in the earthquake's aftermath our team's attention turned to working with partners and community organizations to restore and rebuild health infrastructure impacted by the earthquake.

In the the 8 months following the earthquake, drawing upon our Haitian led workforce of laborers, electricians, and seismic engineers, BHI is working with a handful of health clinics on Haiti’s Southern Peninsula to rebuild and restore infrastructure that was impacted by the earthquake. As we assist in building back, our team is again drawing upon lessons learned from two major earthquakes and over a decade of experience in Haiti, to ensure the new facilities will be resilient in the face of disaster.

This work would not be possible without the generous support of donors like you. Thank you for building with us.

On Saturday, August 14th 2021 at 8:29 am, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck Southern Haiti, destroying much of the region’s infrastructure and straining the area’s healthcare facilities. Within the hour, BHI’s team had already mobilized, working with partners on the ground to provide assessments, assistance, and relief. 

In the months that have followed, BHI completed 6 structural safety assessments, equipped trauma and orthopedic surgery spaces with over 10,000 pounds of life-saving medical supplies, and managed the challenging supply chain through collaboration with 41 partners. These essential relief services were all made possible thanks to the generosity of donors like you. 

As Haiti continues to recover from the earthquake and face additional challenges as a nation, our work is far from over. In addition to earthquake relief, BHI continues to build and bolster healthcare infrastructure across Haiti. This week, BHI completed construction of the Boucan Carre Clinic, which will expand access to women’s healthcare in the region. 

Thank you again for helping us provide rapid and critical relief following the earthquake. We are grateful to have you on our team as we build towards a future of greater health equity in Haiti.
