Although some things in Haiti have improved since the 2010 earthquake, the reality of day to day life is still incomprehensible.
Until their political and economical situations improve dramatically, we won’t see a vast improvement in the health of many of their children. Where malnutrition is, poor education always follows (compounding the issues of Haiti’s future). It’s a well known fact that children cannot thrive in many areas of life without proper nutrition, but they especially cannot focus in school. Many Haitian teachers basically say, “We have to send many of them home. They’re in a daze the entire day without being able to focus at all”. There is just no reason people should have to live this way. So many children (especially in the more remote areas of Haiti) are wasting away, literally. Our meals provide a quick nutritious fix for these children. Our goal is to continually add more local grown Haitian vegetables into these meals as well as use some other in-country resources of nutrition.
One child or community at a time, we can help make a difference.
A $40 monthly sponsorship to our feeding program will provide food for a family in one of our programs.
They’ll receive food and a clean cup of drinking water in their local communities. The feeding programs are run by strong, local Haitian pastors and leaders. Our goal is always to make it a strong, faith based environment filled with love & support. Their mothers will have peace of mind with these sponsorships, knowing where their children’s weekly meals are coming from. We’ve already heard countless stories of mothers who said “having their children in this program has taken away her shame (from having to beg for food), improved her child or children’s overall health, and given them the basic nutrition to behave like children should (and even excel in school)”
Chances for Children will send each sponsor an (approximate) quarterly feeding program update.
In this plan your sponsorship monies will provide food for a family with 4 children for a month
In this plan your sponsorship monies will provide food for a family with 6 children for a month
