Feeding Programs

Millions of Haitians are food insecure.

One in three Haitians – around 3.7 million people – needs urgent food assistance, up from 2.6 million people at the end of 2018, the United Nations said in December 2019. Haiti now ranks 111 out of 117 countries on the Global Hunger Index, in the company mostly of the poorest sub-Saharan African countries.

Chances for Children partners with 13 Arche de L’Alliance Churches throughout Haiti with feeding programs and has 2-other feeding programs in Kenscoff. In addition 6-other schools, churches, orphanages are supported by supplying them with Feed My Starving Children food packets.

Using Feed My Starving Children’s food, ~5,100 children are now receiving a hot meal and safe drinking water three times per week.

A sustainable, low water farming program was started in Massikot in 2018. The results are encouraging and a ‘Year 2′ program has been identified. Additionally, plans are to expand this program to another site in 2021 which will include 3-church families in the Jacmel area.

Mobile Water Filters

Over >1,000 mobile water filters have been given out to the communities of Haiti. These water filters have helped >1,500 families have access to clean water every day.
