It has been reported that the level of food availability in Haiti is one of the lowest in the world. 1 in 5 Haitian children are malnourished. It is difficult or impossible for children to learn when they are hungry.
At our sponsored school, Ecole Sainte Esprit in Cavaillon, our feeding program serves a hot meal each school day for over 250 students and staff of our sponsored community. For many of these children this is the only meal they will receive that day.
