FEJ Childrens Center
FEJ is the proud recipient of this historic and innovative building thanks to the generosity of the US Green Building Council (USGBC). The center was completed in 2018 after many years of planning and construction. The 7,500 square foot facility operates off the grid as the first LEED-certified building of its type in Haiti.
The building is in the final stages of the certification process and is targeting LEED Platinum of LEED V4. It has replaced our administrative offices that were destroyed by the 2010 earthquake, and since April 2020 it is the home to our Caris Foundation Pediatric Intensive Care Unit through a partnership with FEJ and Caris. We are providing residential medical treatment to children with challenging medical problems such as severely malnourished children and HIV-positive children.
