Haiti is the only low-income country in the Americas and its economy has been repeatedly affected by political crises and a series of devastating natural disasters over the last two decades. The World Food Programme launched Haiti's first Home-Grown School Feeding program in Nippes department in 2015. The program uses locally produced food bought directly from smallholder farmers, helping children and simultaneously stimulating the local economy. School meals help to improve children’s nutrition, ability to learn and life chances while giving poor families an incentive to send their children to school.
Your shared meals will help us ensure that 8,000 children receive proper nutrition and educational support in the upcoming school year.
Yemen is experiencing one of the worst hunger crises in the world today. Nearly 1 million people do not know where their next meal will come from and will not survive without help. More than 2 million children are malnourished, including half a million who are at imminent risk of dying if they do not receive urgent care and specialized treatment.
To avert the looming catastrophe, the World Food Programme is scaling up its food assistance in the country, but we can’t do it alone. Your shared meals will help us reach our goal of providing 1 million meals to children affected by this hunger crisis.
