Project Name: Haiti New Hope Village residents resettlement project- phase 2
Project Description:

After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Republic of China (Taiwan) worked with the Haitian government to build New Hope Village in Savane Diane, relocating displaced people from the country’s capital city, Port-au-Prince.

To assist the village’s new residents to settle, the TaiwanICDF conducted an agricultural production project, a horticultural production project and a poultry project to provide basic supplies of food, as well as bamboo handicraft training courses designed to increase residents’ income. Additionally, a water supply system, currently under construction, will be available for residents’ daily use and also support the irrigation of 50 hectares of farmland.
