alternative temporary housing

Filed under: Uncategorized — rachelmd5 @ 7:19 pm

It is apparent that Port-Au-Prince will need to be evacuated in order to rebuild the capital along with other cities like Jacmel, Petit Paradis, and the list goes on.  With this terrible tragedy, do we really want to relocate the now homeless haitians to refugee camps in other countries indefinitely until there paperwork can be processed? 

The Haitian government and supporting nations may want to also consider floating dormitories like they use for the coastguard, or like the Queen Mary floating hotel.  This would allow families to stay together, create jobs potentially and would alleviate immigration back logs which are sure to happen as long as Haiti is being rebuilt.  I realize this would not house all displaced haitians who have lost their home, but a little bit goes a long way.
