There are many nutritional challenges in rural Haiti

Children being educated on basic food groups and nutrition

The Food and Agriculture Organization for the United Nations reports that Haiti has the highest percentage of individuals who suffer from undernourishment (57%), compared to other countries in the western hemisphere. Anemia is highly prevalent, and there is little variety in the daily diet. The main focus of our nutrition experts is to educate the Haitian population concerning basic nutrition principles and how to improve their diet for better health and well-being. In order to educate the people of Timo, the nutrition team works closely with local Haitians to overcome the challenges of obtaining food that is nutritious, affordable, and safe to eat. The team also trains community health workers to assist in developing plans that will ensure continued health and nutrition education in our absence. They teach these community health workers how to promote general nutrition, food preparation, hygiene, and breastfeeding. These workers also assist in establishing community gardens and encouraging greater variety in the local diet. Make a major difference in the lives of others and donate to our nutrition projects now.
