HERO, Inc.

Medical Clinics and Housing

Hero has provided construction management (CM) support for the construction of two medical clinics in Haiti.  This support has included reviewing construction documents including plans and specifications, on-site visits to monitor the construction progress, and approval of pay requests from the contractor.  Many construction projects undertaken in Haiti are under funded and rarely on schedule.  HERO provides CM support to help NGOs and nonprofits keep their projects on budget and on schedule.

Hinche: HERO provided CM support for the construction of the Whitney Clinic in Hinche for St. Monica's Catholic Church in Duluth, Georgia.  Working with the contractor, Abdou Fall, the clinic was successfully completed on schedule and within budget.

HERO is helping support the BATF (La Famille des Enfants de Belle Anse or Belle Anse Timoun Family) nonprofit organization that provides a school, medical clinic, and scholarships for students in the Belle Anse village in the Southeast Department in Haiti.  Bekert Descollines is the Executive Director and was raised in Belle Anse and Karen Kwong is the US representative.  The school/medical clinic is partially completed and scholarships have been given to two students to date.
