Please watch this short video about Haiti's poor and the reality that they must eat DIRT to survive. I did not believe this until I went to Haiti, but, unfortunately this is very true. Parents will feed their children dirt cookies to keep the from crying at night from hunger.
I would ask for your reaction, whatever your reaction may be. The intention is to increase awareness and get different opinions.
Chicken Farming Protein deficiency is one of the greatest causes of malnutrition in the Caribbean and Latin America. The gift of baby chicks will not only help provide a family with a sustainable form of protein (eggs), but the sale of extra eggs can also be a supplemental source of income. Chickens, endearing birds that require modest space and effortless nurturing, are the ideal product for a self-sustaining animal husbandry initiative. Chickens are economical and require minimal maintenance, and the protein from their eggs will help prevent the devastating effects of malnutrition. With this initiative, the backyard of any rural home can be the source of food for a family.

FACT: One third of newborn babies are born underweight; acute undernutrition among children under 5 is 9 percent; chronic undernutrition is 24 percent; 50 percent of pregnant women and two thirds of children under 5 are affected by anaemia.
The sea and fishery sector now play a critical roles in developing food resources for poor and undernourished countries. Over the last two decades aquaculture (fish farming) has become a viable farming alternative for food insecure countries.
Tilapia farming, the nurturing and harvesting of tilapia fish, is a prime example of aquaculture. Tilapia farming is a self-sustaining fish harvest initiative specifically designed to enhance food production, produce a nutritional source of food to reduce malnutrition, and encourage economic sustainability with a viable and marketable product.

All Nighter for the Poor Early planning… • Planning: Making the All-Nighter a reality on your campus will take some planning and effort, but it’s very do-able. This night can have a HUGE impact on your campus, church and community! How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank
What is "All Nighter for the Poor"? It is a way for every person on every college campus, to work together to make a real change in the 17 countries Food For The Poor serves in the Caribbean and Latin America.
A way to make an immeasurable difference...besides raising much needed funding, this night allows you to educate and raise awareness on the issue of hunger.
Please call or sign up and find out how you can be the change.
the "All Nighter For The Poor" blog. Thank you for coming. Please look out for our new website which will be launched in June. It will have a "Leader's Guide" that will explain how to have a successful and fun "All Nighter For The Poor" event on your campus. Additionally there will be a video explaining how to run the night as well as FAQs and easy access to Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
We look forward to hearing from you and ending hunger in the countries we serve. Remember "one" person can make a difference. Did you know - one in eight Haitian children dies before the age of 5. No one should die from hunger. One special night could help change that. By participating in All-Nighter For The Poor on your campus on October 16th, you can help raise awareness and funds for life-saving food programs.
