Since MSAADA first became involved in projects in Haiti in 2007, we have worked on close to 100 projects located on the Caribbean island, including more than half of those having been built already. We first got involved in the country when Healing Hands for Haiti (HHH), an organization with Minnesotan roots, reached out to ask for our assistance for their new planned physical rehabilitation institute in Port-au-Prince. The situation changed dramatically after the earthquake that shook Haiti on January 12, 2010, when most of HHH’s existing facilities were destroyed. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) then provided the funding to rebuild the HHH outpatient facilities.
Our involvement in that project led to one of MSAADA’s expatriate architectural designers being stationed in Haiti to assist with the construction of that project. Through that project and other clients and organizations seeing MSAADA’s quality of design work and construction management, we have developed a lasting presence in Haiti, with the first office being opened in Port-au-Prince in 2011. Since then, MSAADA has employed a staff of Haitians and expats in the country. The MSAADA Haiti branch benefits from the full support of the MSAADA Minneapolis office’s 30+ years of experience and expertise. To take a closer look to our work in Haiti click in MSAADA Haiti
