About 45% of the population in Haiti experiences chronic hunger. The majority are children and youth under the age of 25.
HIMH places a priority on fighting hunger, providing a hot meal five times a week during the school year. It is common for this to be the only meal our students receive in a day.
A humanitarian crisis is imminent in Haiti. Basic necessities for human life in Haiti - water, food, gas – are simply not available for families, or are out of reach due to the exorbitant cost. HIMH will not abandon our children and families in Haiti.
Inflation rates in Haiti have doubled the cost of basic needs.
Children who are hungry are less able to learn, leading to problems that challenge academic success such as lower test scores and attention problems. Hungry students are more likely to repeat a grade.
