On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti 15 miles from Port-Au-Prince. The initial quake – and 50+ strong aftershocks – caused an incomprehensible level of devastation and destruction, leaving over 3 million people without adequate food, shelter, water and virtually no municipal infrastructure.
HRG is dedicated to helping Haiti rebuild in the wake of this disaster. We know this can only be accomplished successfully with a plan that puts Haitians first – a plan that empowers the people and businesses to be leaders in their own training and rebuilding efforts while respecting tradition.
Our goal: Quick, effective and comprehensive recovery that leaves Haiti a stronger, more capable and prosperous nation.
