Elvis Dumervil has given money to help those in his parents' native country of Haiti.

Now he’s personally going to make sure people are being helped and to witness it for himself.

Dumervil is accompanying New Story Charity this weekend to survey the progress of his rebuilding project and see the first few families move from the slums into their newly built houses in Bercy, Haiti.

Dumervil has pledged to fund the building of 58 homes, corresponding with his jersey number.

He won't be picking up a hammer to build the houses himself, but he's the financial backing behind the development of the large-scale community, and is hoping to turn it into something even bigger as more NFL players join in.
