We help equip families to help their child recover from malnutrition and provide education to help prevent the recurrence of nutritional issues. Research shows that poor nutrition in the first few years of a child’s development can have lasting negative impacts throughout the child’s life, including stunted physical growth, learning and memory deficits, and behavioral problems. Alongside vital education about nutrition and malnutrition, we provide the appropriate nutritional supplement of infant formula or medika mamba, at no cost to the family.
Special Needs Outreach
In Haiti, individuals with special needs are oftentimes marginalized and face many challenges. It is common for caregivers to receive little to no support due to the shame and negative stigma that surrounds special needs. Because of this, children with special needs are at high risk of abandonment. The goal of this program is to provide caregivers with the education, resources, and support that is needed to preserve the family unit and care well for their child and themselves.
