Feed A Family
What is it?
We purchase bags of rice and beans from the local market and hand deliver to local families in need. Most, if not all households include a large immediate and/or extended family with malnourished children and no proper food at home.
Why is it important?
Can you imagine your family having no food to eat for days and not knowing where food will come from next? In rural Haiti, most of the families have no food to live on and commonly spends days without food. No wonder the children are malnourished and many are stunted, or irreversibly short for their age! They are not even guaranteed one meal a day! You can change that by sending rice and beans to feed a family for a month! We will walk as far as we need to and hand deliver them to families in need. You can make sure children can come back to a home-cooked meal.
Project Cost: $50 per month per family or $500 per month for 10 families
