Gertha Alerte lives in Delmas 60, a densely populated neighborhood in Port-au-Prince where most of the houses were damaged. Gertha’s house partially collapsed during the earthquake killing her young nephew and injuring her mother.
“Even though I don’t know when I’ll be able to rebuild my house, I know now how to build it right.”
“I know now that my house collapsed because it was not well built”, she said, after completing Build Change’s homeowner training workshop.
