Jan Eliot travels to Haiti with Habitat for Humanity

Stone Soup creator Jan Eliot is on her way to Haiti to join 450 other volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. The group plans to build 100 homes in Leogane.

Due to lack of internet, she plans to tweet her experiences. I’m posting her initial ones below (most recent to older tweets):

This build is on land secured for the future owners. They will each own their plot. http://pic.twitter.com/PohBm0vB

One barrier to rebuilding in Haiti is land ownership.Most homeless were renters.Habitat’s first homes lacked clear title & were confiscated.

Landed in Haiti. Drove through a sea of tents, shacks, with trucks loaded with people going up the road to somewhere. http://pic.twitter.com/T1sawERN
