Haitian Villages

Consider the home you live in.  Now take away anything that runs on electricity including your television, refrigerator, microwave, blender, coffee pot, light fixtures, fans, and air conditioning.  Now take away your stove, furniture including your bed, carpeting, tile, and windows.  Subtract from that your walls, doors, and floor all together.  What you have left is a basic home in Haiti.  Many Haitians live in homes made of thatch with dirt floors.  Temperatures in the summer can reach over 100 degrees with humidity around 70%.  Would you be able to endure this kind of weather without the luxuries of your own home?
