PORT-AU-PRINCE, Ouest, HT (sentinel.ht) – Elvis Dumervil took his first trip to Haiti not only to see where his mother and ancestors came from, but also to see first-hand how his rebuilding effort is helping a nation that is struggling six years removed from a catastrophic earthquake.

The Baltimore Ravens linebacker is building 58 houses for those in need in Haiti — which corresponds with his jersey number — in an effort to raise support for a country where 85,000 are still homeless due to the earthquake and 200,000 more are living in slum tents. This project will cost Dumervil $377,000, or $6,500 per house.

Last weekend, Dumervil accompanied New Story Charity to see the first families move from the slums into their newly built homes in Bercy, Haiti. Read full story.
