Hurricane Matthew update!
Build Health International was in the process of building a new surgical center in Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti, when Hurricane Matthew struck the south coast. In its devastating aftermath, they are redeploying staff, crews, materials, equipment, and other resources in an all-out effort to help clear roads, repair bridges, ensure access to food and water, and prevent disease. It will be a long recovery, but BHI, in partnership with the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation, is committed to seeing it through.
Once disaster relief efforts have been stabilized, volunteer plumbers will be needed for various projects in Haiti for new construction and renovations.
Most work is start to finish; also some underground plumbing, finish work, medical equipment installation.
Please update your volunteer profile in the volunteer section of our website.
Current projects in Haiti in the design or construction phase include a national reference laboratory, surgical center, mother’s house and sanitation block, medical resident dorm, climate-controlled warehouse and distribution center, and residential school.
Build Health International is doing a major upgrade and expansion of the existing 500KW solar photo voltaic (PV) system at Hospital Universitaire in Mirebalais, as well as renovations and updates to 12 clinics across the country.
Based in Beverly MA, Build Health International has a small professional staff supported by skilled tradespeople who volunteer on site.
