USAID/LEAD Funds Awarded To Veerhouse Voda, Haiti

Port au Prince, Haiti, W.I., December 20, 2014 – Veerhouse Voda is the recipient of the USAID/LEAD grant that the company announced will be used to continue its development of affordable and disaster resilient homes and buildings throughout the region.  The Veerhouse Voda construction method was born from the earthquakes that ravished Haiti in 2010.

Veerhouse Voda’s affordable building solutions combine lightweight steel frames, expanded polystyrene (EPS) walls, and a patented mortar mix, to create a system able to effectively produce permanent structures like schools, homes, hotels and medical facilities that are highly resistant to earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, and floods.  The company has recently received funds for the creation of a local manufacturing plant for materials needed in Haiti for the regional expansion.

The PADF was founded in 1962 by the Organization of American States, and focuses on pressing concerns of the Western hemisphere. It is a non-profit organization that has reached over 10 million people in over 22 countries. PADF has proven to be a viable enterprise with an ability to be nimble in reacting to changes that directly impact the people living in the region.  USAID/LEAD is the leading U.S. Government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential.
