SUKUP SAFE T HOME®
GoServ Global has teamed up with Sukup Manufacturing Co. to bring relief to the families without homes. Using highly-modified grain bins, what we call a Sukup Safe T Home®, we have been able to provide nearly 300 homes in Haiti alone. This has allowed people without homes since the massive and devastating earthquake in 2010 almost to finally have a place of their own. In addition, GoServ Global’s latest Sukup Safe T Home® projects include an Orphan Refugee Camp in Uganda and Hidden Creeks Bible Camp in Peru.
Hurricane Matthew, hitting Haiti in October 2016 with winds of up to 145 mph, put the nearly 200 Sukup Safe T Homes® in Haiti to the test. ALL of the Safe T Homes withstood the hurricane with minimal damage!
