AFH Responds to Haiti Disaster

Architecture for Humanity,
the not-for-profit organization that responds to catastrophic humanitarian disaster with
long-term design solutions, is responding to Tuesday’s devastating earthquake
in Haiti, which has left widespread destruction and thousands dead according to
official estimates. In an email blast, AFH executive director Cameron Sinclair
said, “We have launched an appeal for supplying
construction and design professionals and supporting earthquake resistant
housing and community structures.” AFH does not provide emergency services to
disaster-ridden areas, but focuses instead on housing displaced persons in the
long-term, and rebuilding safer and stronger buildings.
