report Food for the Hungry

by Martin on SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 in DISASTER RELIEF

With Hurricane Isaac recently causing havoc in Haiti, it is a good time to reflect that even when Haiti is not in the news for storms or earthquakes, FH is active behind-the-scenes helping local leaders create healthy and disaster-resilient communities. One of these cases is Belladere, a town close to the border of the Dominican Republic. It’s densely populated and poor, and only about half the inhabitants get a school education.

Rebuilding Haiti

This past year showed many hardships in Haiti.

January 12 marks the one year anniversary of the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that killed 230,000 people and left 1 million people homeless. With cholera outbreaks and political riots, Haitians suffered loss in 2010 on multiple levels.

Haiti also experienced recovery and renewed hope. Motivated by Christ's love for the vulnerable, Food for the Hungry created programs to assist Haitians in rebuilding their lives and create dreams for 2011.
