This year, GDG completed construction on the expansion of Hope for Haiti’s Infirmary St. Etienne. The doors opened on February 1 and the new building features three consultation rooms, a laboratory, two nursing stations, a wound care room, staff bathrooms and a patient record room. The expansion will allow patients more privacy and, ultimately, more dignity as they seek the healthcare they need.
Michael Gay Sr. was recently featured in a profile of his construction work in Haiti in a glowing profile in Southwest Profile.
D.K. Christi writes:
GDG construction projects survived the 7.0 magnitude earthquake in 2010 which killed more than 200,000 people, injured 300,000 and left 1.5 million Haitian homeless. “Before the hurricane, I worked to convince developers that more expensive, better construction would pay off.” GDG recent projects include hurricane proof housing financed by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and the Oasis cruise ship port. Gay’s current projects in modern school construction represent Haiti’s future: free youth education for the first time, housing, and jobs.
