Project Location: Haiti North, Haiti
Project Code: HDP HHN0923
Our staff reports that most Haitian families are struggling daily to survive. The unprecedented high inflation rates are pushing everyone to the “brink of famine.”
Our Haiti North sponsor site team are emphatic about the situation in their country. Political violence, gang warfare, and economic instability have all contributed to a crisis where Haitian families are food insecure and on the verge of starvation due to escalating prices and limited availability of some commodities.
In partnership with Chalice, the Haiti North site staff will supply extra funds to sponsored children and site staff to buy food locally. Each sponsored child’s family and staff member will receive an equal amount, distributed quarterly.
The local environment is too dangerous for the site to do a bulk distribution of food. Direct cash transfer is more secure and gives more autonomy to families to buy what they need based on what is available in their local markets.
Chalice is raising $165,692.00 CAD to give 1801 families the funds they need to buy food, which will help 6100 people eat a daily meal, combat malnutrition, and gain hope.
Budget in Canadian Funds: $165,692.00 CAD
Please note that any donations that exceed the request will be used to fund other community projects that may arise.
