Our Situation

Once the world’s most fertile land, Haiti today is barren. The lush forests have been stripped away to produce charcoal to fuel cooking fires.

Topsoil has been washed into the sea and the land today has stopped producing food enough to feed its people.

Many discouraged men leave home in search of work but never return, thus putting added pressure on the women to somehow produce income to feed and care for their already-neglected children.

Children exist in unimaginable poverty and misery and are denied the very basic needs in life. Malnutrition, disease and death threaten daily. Statistics show that 50% of these children will die before age 5.
