"Leogane is a town of 180,000 people, spread across urban and rural areas. We are located in Darbonne, a neighborhood 4km outside of the Leogane town center. Much of the population is living in tent camps or on the street in front of their damaged or destroyed homes. Tremors still affect the area and people are extremely afraid, so much so that many will not enter structures even during daylight hours. One of our focuses during the early part of the project will be rubble removal/demolition so that families can move from camps back onto their own clear space; we aim to expand to transitional construction, sanitation, and NGO support activities."
