The Soy Products Factories Project 2009

The Soy Products Factories Project 2009 will establish factories for the production of soymilk and byproducts that will be distributed to local orphanages, nursing homes, and day-care centers. Milk and dairy foods are expensive, which make them limited in supply. The Soy Products Factories will help reduce agency budgets, freeing up monies previously spent on expensive dairy products for other immediate needs.

A Food Solution: Aquaculture

Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organism such as fish, shellfish and aquatic plants. It is an environmentally sound and cost-effective channel for developing countries to augment food supply and enhance nutritional intake.

A Food Solution-Goat Breeding

The Goat Breeding and Distribution Project will provide for the establishment of
a goat-breeding farm. Two hundred local goats (Haitian-born goats) will be purchased for
reproduction. Five premium goats, which will be purchased from the Dominican Republic, with
the objective of crossbreeding -- mating with the local (Haitian) goats, which are of substandard
quality, to produce superior offspring. A security watchman and caretaker will maintain the goat

Health Is A Human Right

"The goal is nothing less than the refashioning of our world into one in which no one starves, drinks impure water, lives in fear of the powerful and violent, or dies ill and unattended. Of course such a world is a utopia, and most of us know we live in a dystopia. But all of us carry somewhere within us the belief that moving away from dystopia moves us towards something better and more humane." Dr Paul Farmer

Chicken Farming-A Food Solution

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
plentiful eggs and meat for a whole family.

Mud cookies

"When my mother does not cook anything, I have to eat them three times a day," Charlene said. Her baby, named Woodson, lay still across her lap, looking even thinner than the slim 6 pounds, 3 ounces, he weighed at birth.

Mud as Food

Mud has long been used by pregnant women and children in Haiti as an antacid and source of calcium. But in places like Cite Soleil, the oceanside slum where a mom shares a two-room house with her baby, five siblings, and two unemployed parents, made of dirt, salt, and vegetable shortening have become a regular meal.

2008 Haiti Storms

Very critical in view of the already high level of food insecurity in Haiti, significant damage has been done to agriculture and the entire harvest of the current agricultural season has been either lost or severely damaged. Nearly all agricultural land has been flooded, resulting in the loss of the current corn, bean and banana harvest, particularly in the regions of the south and south-east.
