Due to the combination of poverty and a series of hurricanes and earthquakes, many people live in dilapidated houses or dwell in homes with mud floors and no proper latrines; the latter two are breeding grounds for diseases. In Caiman and its surrounding villages, approximately 40% are without adequate housing and many displaced families from the Port-au-Prince earthquake do not have homes.

United Christan International has already improved the lives of 24 families by building new homes and replaced 156 mud floors with concrete. They plan to provide as many well-constructed homes as possible for families in the communities they work in.

Latest update

Four Homes Complete

Four more homes have been completed in the Village de Cana site at UCI!  These much needed homes will be utilized for professor housing to support the University.  A small solar electrical system as well as basic plumbing was installed in these homes to raise the standard of living a bit and help retain quality professors at the University.
