Through design-build programs, competitions, educational forums and partnerships with relief organisations, Architecture for Humanity supports major reconstruction efforts and humanitarian relief worldwide. For example, they assist communities following crises, such as the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and the Southeast Asian tsunami, among other projects.
