Haiti experiences natural disasters, usually tropical storms and hurricanes, on a fairly regular basis. Lives are often lost simply because families have nowhere to go when the water rises. Within the walls of the King Center, people would be able to find shelter, safety, and provision.

Two soccer pitches provide temporary refuge for up to 10,000 people and the central area serves the basic needs of those seeking refuge.

  • The two separate soccer stadiums and two separate locker rooms would allow for men to be sheltered apart from women and children better ensuring safety and comfort for all.

  • Meals can be prepared and served right in the same building.

  • A stocked and staffed infirmary would provide first aid and work closely with a neighboring clinic and hospital.
