Basic Needs

The people of Haiti are some of the most malnourished people in the world.  Currently, we refer the most malnourished people to other aid providers for their basic needs.  At some time in the future, we would like to be able to provide for the basic needs of the poorest people in our area of operations, which is the area surrounding the city of Jeremie in the Grande Anse province.  We believe that helping to provide proper nourishment will decrease medical costs, and increase the effectiveness of our education efforts.  Examples of possible programs include soup-kitchen like activities where the poor will be able to receive a hot nutritious meal and a meal delivery program that will deliver meals to those who are unable to leave their homes due to illness, etc.

At this time, our main focus will be on medical missions, education, and infrastructure.  If we are able to develop a sustainable basic needs program, and secure the funding for the program, we will implement it at that time.
