In 2019, due to drought, political unrest and food costs tripling in less than a year, Haiti fast approached famine-like conditions (according to the World Food Program). We have the opportunity to provide a small meal to each student at our mountain school as well as supplement a lunch program at another elementary school in the main city on the island. More than 175 children receive a meal each school day.
"For these children it will likely be the only meal they eat today. Their parents are very grateful we can help. Without this program students fall asleep in class and cannot concentrate because they are too hungry. Providing them with food helps them learn more." ~Pastor Paul Mevoir, school director
