HEALTH & NUTRITION
ADDRESSING CHILDREN’S MENTAL, PHYSICAL AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING. OUR PROGRAMS PROVIDE FOOD AID, MEDICAL CARE, EMERGENCY AID, PROPER NUTRITIONAL AND HYGIENIC EDUCATION, CLEAN WATER SOLUTIONS, FITNESS AND MIND BODY SPIRIT WELLNESS.
Currently, one out of five children in Haiti are malnourished, one out of ten are acutely malnourished and one out of fourteen will die before reaching the age of five.
Many children in Haiti have one meal per day, some less.
The effects of chronic and acute malnutrition are life-long. Severe malnutrition suffered in the first two years of life in Haiti has resulted in irreversible physical and mental disabilities and depressed immune systems, making children more susceptible to contracting diseases and increasing the probability of childhood death.
To address this problem we use nutrition-focused programs that include interventions aimed at preventing hunger. Partnering with local food distributors and supermarkets, we secure a steady flow of in kind food supply for our supported orphanages. We oftentimes also collaborate with international food aid organizations to obtain added food provisions and replenishments for the neediest of Haiti’s children.
Some food aid distribution collaborators include:
US 82ND Airborne
Local Supermarkets – Giant, Caribbean, Bongu, Tasha Foods and more
