Clinic Refurbishment Begins – Thank you to Positive Legacy

We are delighted to say that work has started on building the new roof for our current clinic. The masons spent today dismantling the damaged and rusty old roof and tomorrow will start the construction of a quality upgrade. Meanwhile, clinic work continues, working out of the nearby school while the children are on vacation.

Over time, Haiti Village Health and Santé Pou Yo personnel have faced roof leaks and even rodent intrusion due to the deconditioning of our roof (shown below).

After much anticipation, we are very pleased to report that HVH and contractor Gabby have reached an agreement on design and budget for roof refurbishment of the current clinic in Bod Me Limbe. Thank you Positive Legacy for your generous support, and thank you Builders Without Borders for your expertise.

We look forward to updating you on the developments of this project, as we welcome a new roof – hurricane-proof, seismic-resistant, water and rat resistant as well!
