Description : Building better structures after the four consecutive killer storms that ravaged Haiti in August and September 2008 is proving a big challenge in a country decimated by poverty, environmental degradation and donor fatigue.

Since December 2008, the Red Cross has been training its volunteers in basic carpentry skills so that they can repair people's homes. So far they have fixed 50, and 50 more are due to be completed shortly.
