Taiwan-built resettlement in Haiti to be inaugurated

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti--A resettlement project in Haiti funded and built by Taiwan to house 1,000 people who lost their homes during a magnitude-7.0 earthquake in 2010 was set to be inaugurated Saturday, according to the construction firm that built the village.

Hope village, which includes housing for 200 families, an elementary school and a dormitory for the teaching faculty, is the first among all permanent shelter projects sponsored by the international community to be inaugurated, the Overseas Engineering & Construction Corp. (OECC) said.

Haiti's minister of foreign affairs and worship, Pierre Richard Casimir, was scheduled to attend the inauguration of the US$5.5 million project that was jointly sponsored by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Red Cross Society of the Republic of China.

The village, located 230 km from the capital, Port-au-Prince, is equipped with a solar-powered lighting system and four water storage facilities, the OECC said.
