 The Haiti House Story

The Caribbean nation of Haiti has experienced devastating earthquakes and hurricanes, is the poorest country in the Americas, and is home to half a million orphans. 


When Istrouma member, Darrin Badon, traveled to Haiti on a mission trip, he was so moved by the deplorable conditions of the Haitian people that he had to act.  The result:  The Haiti House. 

The Haiti House is a 20’ x 8’ shipping container modified to serve as a home for a Haitian family. It is similar in size and cost to many homes in Haiti but has the added advantage of being hurricane-proof.
