Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, and one of the most disadvantaged countries in the developing world. Seventy-six percent of Haitians live on less than U.S. $2 per day, while 55 percent live on less than U.S. $1 per day.
Haiti has a population of nearly 8 million. Eighty percent live in poverty, one million children are chronically malnourished and one in eight will not live to see adulthood.
Before the earthquake, an estimated 38,000 children under the age of five die every year in Haiti – almost one out of three because of malnutrition.
You can help us make a difference in Haiti’s Central Plateau. With your generous contributions, we will be able to feed the children at schools in Lacahobas, Rantlamouaie, Crosse, Pouley, Lahoye, and Fande Haiti.
At some of our locations we are working with World Vison and have created lunch canteens for the children. These are very basic meals often consisting of only beans and rice. For many this will be the only meal of the day! Help us expand these programs to all the schools.
