It costs around 7 thousand dollars to build a home in Haiti therefore; she could liquidate her assets and build 17,857 houses. That would provide housing for more than 1/10 or 107,142 people. If you bear in mind that many Haitians also have their parents living with them that could actually provide enough homes for half of the displaced people in Haiti.
