DRM Prefab Homes come as an answer to Haiti's Housing crisis
Haiti's need for a permanent housing solution
Located in the Caribbean Sea, Haiti is one of the most amazing Caribbean islands where even under crippling poverty, resilience is brightly shown in the smile of every human being.
With a growing population of about 11 million inhabitants for a total of 27 700 square meters, Haiti needs a more reasonable approach to meet the urbanization challenges they face as a nation. This view is reinforced by the World Bank's statistics showing that more than 55% of Haiti’s population concentrates in urban areas.
Due to the authorities’ lack of capacity to enforce the laws, houses are generally built with heavy materials such as cement blocks and concrete while building code is rarely respected. Furthermore, such building techniques are time-consuming. This outdated construction method also requires massive labor as well as supervision costs, while resulting in lower quality.
The raging cost of building materials makes it even more difficult for families to afford a decent over their heads. As a result, some families can take more than 5 years to build a half-finished house of bad quality.
A parallel issue that adds up to Haiti's housing problem is the inadequate power system, a downgraded and badly maintained power network that is not capable guarantee constant power supply to the citizens. As a consequence, the electrical shortage is one of the biggest nightmares which the general population is struggling with. This situation, as a result, forces many families to look for alternative solutions to cover their additional electrical needs, which translates into costly secondary power sources, thus in most cases, the dream of a family home and a peaceful life becomes even more distant and certainly less affordable.
