Kevin Kennedy travels to Haiti for Sante Se Riches Medikal
The Haitian Heritage & Friends of Haiti (HHFoH) is a grassroots community based non-profit organization strongly committed to strengthen and improve the quality of life of the Haitian Community. After the devastating earthquake in 2010, HHFoH decided to become an integral part in the relief and rebuilding of Haiti while partnering with the international community. Early 2014, HHFoH started working on a medical clinic for the earthquake victims in the Northern rural area of Haiti.
Kevin traveled to Haiti in April to survey the land for the hospital. While he was there, he evaluated the wind conditions, water sources and energy connections. A pivotal part of this project was to use all of the existing elements that were around such as native thorny plants as security methods and to take inventory of items that could be salvaged and reused in the area.
Cluck wins a 2013 AIA Honor Award for Atypic's Office Upfit.
