On August 14, 2021, a 7.2M earthquake devasted the southern region of Haiti.

What has #MiyamotoHaiti accomplished since?
👉 Partnered with UNOPS
👉 Trained over 2,000 masons, carpenters and steel workers on how to repair and rebuild confined masonry and traditional buildings. ​
👉 Trained over 14,000 building owners on how to initiate and follow through the reconstruction process, be supported by certified masons, and produce the appropriate documents. ​
👉 Nearly 180,00 structures have undergone damage and repair assessments.
👉 Miyamoto Haiti is now working to repair schools that were labeled in need of repair and create temporary steel shelter to replace the schools that were completely damaged​.

💡The hands-on training of masons, iron workers and wood workers has allowed for a transfer of knowledge within the Haitian communities. The global partnership between Miyamoto Haiti and UNOPS, united with the Haitian community action, has mobilized the earthquake affected communities to “build back safer,” states Guilaine Victor, country manager of Miyamoto Haiti.​

Haiti Real Time Damage Assessments

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck southwest Haiti on August 14, 2021, leaving an estimated 650,000 people in need of aid. In partnership with the Haitian government and UNOPS, assessments are actively being conducted across Haiti with over 20,000 buildings assessed to date. This ambitious program aims to assess and repair damages on more than 100,000 structures, all widely spread out in the affected area, within four months. Keep up to date on the ongoing assessments with our live progress report dashboard.

This building can withstand an unlimited number of earthquakes. That’s the difference... In the event of a major earthquake, this airport will be the center of emergency response for Southern California. - Dan Feger, Executive Director, Bob Hope Airport

After talking to Miyamoto, we decided to do a complete retrofitting of the structure as well as an expansion. An earthquake by itself is not a fatality. It is how you build that makes the difference. - Richard Buteau, Karibe Hotel Owner
