"Of all the years living in Haiti, I've never seen people so desperate for food."
Kingdom Connection Distiribution Center, Haiti
On the day this video was filmed, over half of the organizations receiving food from the Kingdom Connection Distiribution Center in Fond-Parisien Haiti were orphanages. Many of the country's tens of thousands of orphans are not orphans at all. They actually have at least one living parent. But conditions are so grim, mothers cannot afford to care for their children. They literally cannot feed them enough to keep them alive. The country's poverty rate in 2020 was an astounding 60%, and 36% of children aged 5-17 are engaged in child labor.
Together, when we send food to Haiti each month, we are saving lives—it may be the most important work we do, and YOU make it possible!
In Haiti, nearly one-third of all children under the age of five suffer from stunted growth. And more than 100,000 children suffer from acute malnutrition. They are dying of hunger. This is why, for over a decade, Jentezen Franklin Media Ministries has sponsored 272,000 meals each month to feed Haiti’s poorest. You can be part of this life-saving outreach!
