Campaign in Haiti

On the 12th of January 2010, Haiti was hit by the country’s strongest earthquake in the last 200 years. Over 220,000 people died, 300,000 were injured and over a million were left homeless.

 


Oikos has worked in the field since the very first moment, building and fitting dwellings with domestic kits and kitchens, creating sanitary installations and access to drinking water, and taking part in preventative measures against cholera.

 

Two micro-construction-industries were also created with recourse to recycled rubble.

 

This Oikos action has benefited 3.600 people, between 2010 and 2011.

 

The Oikos in Haiti was also supported by the Portuguese population, which contributed with 75.000 euros in donations given to this Emergency Campaign.
