Pacific Domes of Oregon, builders of the best Geodesic Dome Structures in Southern Oregon, is proud to continue to step up to extend a helping hand, creating and enacting significant relief domes for charitable projects around the world!
On January 12th, 2010, a catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake shook Port-Au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. The earthquake took a tragic toll on the country, with over 100,000 lives lost and 250,000 homes destroyed. The rebuilding of Haiti is ongoing, thanks in large part to the help of many local and international aid organizations and the hard work and resilience of Haitians.
Pacific Domes has been in operation since the 1980s, and the company had offered relief shelters in the wake of some of the most devastating disasters in recent years, most notably Hurricane Katrina. With the help of donors, relief organizations, and a group of midwives from Eugene, Oregon, Pacific Domes was able to provide 22 domes a month after the earthquake in Haiti struck. These domes served as shelter for the homeless, medical tents for the injured and disease stricken, and safe and sanitary birthing centers.
Our geodesic domes can be seen around the world at music festivals, eco-resort shelters, and organic farm greenhouses. We are grateful that our domes could be used alongside other inspiring relief efforts in Haiti, and we’re sure that they will continue to serve a place in the country’s healing process.
