This is the time of year when we celebrate mothers. Haiti Foundation of Hope has a number of ongoing programs that can provide encouragement to mothers living in rural northern Haiti, a place where a mother’s struggle can sometimes be providing food for her children.
Women’s Trade School — The women’s trade school is a three-year program that offers women an opportunity to learn skills such as sewing, cooking, childhood development, nutrition, health and etiquette.
Community Health — The community health program is mobilizing, training, and supporting local volunteers to reduce deaths from childhood diarrhea, maternal complications and malnutrition.
Beans and Rice — In a country where many people struggle to have enough to eat, a gift of beans and rice can make all the difference. The food is distributed to individuals and families most in need.
School — Give a mother the peace of mind that her children are gaining an education and receiving a school lunch each day. The school in Terre Blanche has 820 pre-kingergarten, primary and secondary students and a staff of caring teachers and administrators.
Medical Clinic — Earlier this year, we celebrated the four-year anniversary of the opening of the Clinic of Hope. While the battle against illness, disease and malnutrition continues, we are grateful that the clinic is there to provide year-round health care. We are also thankful that its services have expanded to include programs such as community health and the distribution of Medika Mamba, a fortified peanut butter for children suffering from malnutrition.
