“Return to Neighbourhoods” programme in Haiti

15 December 2014

The “Return to Neighbourhoods” programme in Port-au-Prince rehouses families who lost their homes in the 2010 earthquake. In its third phase, the project is currently working to relocate 2,400 families by mid-2015. The programme is supported by the EU Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) department.

When Haiti’s most devastating earthquake struck in 2010, some 1.5 million people’s homes were destroyed…Working within the Haitian government’s 16/6 strategy to decommission six camps and return families to 16 zones within Port-au-Prince, Concern launched a pilot project in January 2011 in a small camp known as ‘Camp Oscar’, helping 192 families to move to better accommodation.
