Feed a Child
Hunger is a huge concern in Haiti. Many people go without food for days.
We feed the children and village each time we go to La Gonave, Port de Bonheur. Once I watched a young child with a huge plate of rice and beans in front of him. I expressed to the principal at Port de Bonheur School that it was too much.
She said, “li pral manje l 'tout” (he will eat it all). I asked her, how long has it been since most of these kids eat? Her reply, “jou” (days).
In Haiti, 1 out of 5 children are underweight. 1 out 10 is acutely malnourished. 1 out of 14 Haitian children die before age 5.
It is also very hard for children to concentrate in school when they haven’t eaten in days. They set in school wondering, when the next meal is coming.
With the help from donations, Least of These will be providing a hot meal of beans and rice each day for lunch. This is rare in Haiti schools, but necessary for health, education, and future of the children. We recently decided to continue to feed the children lunches during the summer while school is on summer break. We don't want the children to fall back into the malnurished condition they were in prior to the lunch program.
The Least of These Foundation does not withold any adminisrative cost from your donation. 100% of your donation goes toward feeding the children.
