Housing units in Morne Lazarre, Haiti

Here is a picture of the Housing units in Morne Lazarre.

President Michel Martelly accompanied by the Executive Director of the Housing Construction Unit and Public Buildings (UCLBP) visited the new housing site in Morne Lazarre, Bourdon Road to hand over the keys to the victims of 16 neighborhoods from the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince which were destroyed by the earthquake of January 12, 2010. The earthquake flattened the poor hillside neighborhood, leaving only a school building standing as a place of refuge. The project has been built on an area of 2,270 square meters and includes 25 family residential units in two and three levels. Fourteen of these residential units have an area of 60 square meters, five have an area of 70 square meters and six are about 50 square meters area, each. The construction has been completed within 16 months (December 2013 to 16 April 2015) under joint funding of the Haiti Reconstruction Fund (HRF) and the American Red Cross of US$.900000 and executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services.
