CHILDREN IN HAITI NEED YOUR HELP.

On 14 August last year, a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti impacting more than 800,000 people including 340,000 children. 

A year on and Haiti is experiencing a major economic crisis, making it difficult for families to afford food and other essentials. About 4.5 million people are experiencing extreme hunger. 

Across the country, hunger is becoming a norm for children. Many don’t know whether they will eat tomorrow.  

In food crises, children are always the most vulnerable. Malnutrition can cause stunting,threaten their mental and physical development, increase the risk of contracting deadly diseases, and cause death. 

Children and their families are in desperate need of food and safe water. Donate to our children’s emergency fund to help children living in crisis today.
