This project will provide a year of nutritious food for Nicholson. Nicholson is 13 years old. His father fell ill and died shortly after the earthquake, and his mother was left without any way of caring for Nicholson and his two brothers, so she brought him to the orphanage. He's a loving, mature boy who takes great care of his two younger brothers.. But without nutritious meals to keep him growing, Nicholson's future will be bleak.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
As an orphan, Nicholson is among the most vulnerable of Haitian children. There isn't a nationwide child protection service operating in Haiti to provide for his basic needs. That means that, without your help, Nicholson may have to go without nutritious meals, leaving him more vulnerable to illness and less healthy.
How will this project solve this problem?
By donating today, you'll help us provide the food Nicholson needs to stay healthy.
Potential Long Term Impact
A healthy, balanced diet prevents illness and promotes healthy growth. By providing the nutritious food Nicholson needs, you're preventing illness and helping him grow up strong!
