When Tropical Storm Isaac hit Haiti, the area of Terre Blanche and the surrounding region was already suffering due to an ongoing drought. The storm brought rain and wind, and gardens were destroyed. The gardens, however, were already lost due to a lack of rain. The food situation in Terre Blanche and the nearby communities is extremely tenuous right now. Haiti Foundation of Hope is working with in-country partners to address the problem. We will keep you posted as we learn more.
How to Help: As always, you can help by giving to the ongoing work in Haiti. Haiti Foundation of Hope supports education and meals for students, food for the needy, micro-loans, clean water filters, medical care, and more. All of these programs help Haitians as they rebuild from natural disasters.
