Project Report

Haiti Helpers

In 2012 Haiti Helpers received a $14,000 grant from ASI to replace roofs on the homes of widows with children. The project developed as we visited and prayed with local widows. One of their regular prayer requests was for their roofs. Old banana leaf roofs leak when it rains, and since it rains every day in Haiti, nothing inside their homes ever dried out.

We realized we needed to "put feet” on our roof prayers when one widow said she had to sleep standing up holding her baby when it rained at night. Her four-year-old would stand up to sleep only after rain water puddled on the floor and ran into his ears. Hearing that story marked the birth of our tin roof project!

We partner with a team of volunteers here in Haiti that put these roofs on for free. We “pay” them with one meal a day while they are working. The materials are delivered to our in-country coordinator’s house, and families of each widow collect the materials and deliver them to her home.  The total cost for an installed roof is $300.

Since 2012 we have completed more than 60 roofs. The grateful widows tell us of the many ways that dry homes and sturdy roofs have changed their lives. Haiti Helpers and its widows send a big thank you to ASI for its generous funding and tin roofs!
