In U.S. and other countries you have cement trucks to deliver cement for a poured concrete foundation or the houses are built modality.

In Haiti with the difficult terrain it may be harder to get a fully loaded cement truck to pour a concrete foundation for house.

Also the lack of newer big equipment is another problem I notice in Haiti.
