Challenge

Haiti is among the world's most challenged nations, with a recent history of political unrest, tragic natural disasters, and economic turmoil. The repeated tragedies have left 55% of the population living below the poverty line, more than half of the population chronically food insecure, and 22% of children chronically malnourished. Haiti is also particularly vulnerable to natural disasters as seen from the recent 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit on August 14, 2021 killing over 2,200 people.

Solution

This project will support pregnant and lactating mothers and their children by directly distributing food vouchers and rationed meals to promote resiliency against economic and environmental shocks. Action Against Hunger also supports government efforts to update emergency preparedness and response plans to better anticipate and prepare for shocks and stresses resulting from natural disasters, which deprive pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, girls, and boys of what they need to thrive.

Long-Term Impact

Action Against Hunger has long served as a partner to the Haitian government. Action Against Hunger supports government efforts to update emergency preparedness and response plans to better anticipate and prepare for shocks and stresses resulting from natural disasters. Additionally, Action Against Hunger has more recently supported the government's response plan to COVID-19 by working with health facility staff on prevention and control activities and community-level education.
