More than 10,000 people will receive Stop Hunger Now meals to help provide nutrition and a hot meal during this time of shortage. Haiti Fund, a trusted partner of Stop Hunger Now, will distribute the meals to farmers and their families throughout the mountain regions where the plantations were destroyed.
The development program of Haiti Fund is designed specifically to enable local people to become self-sufficient. However, the margin between self-sufficiency and hunger is very thin, and events like Hurricane Sandy can significantly interrupt the ability of these farmers to feed themselves and their families. The long-term shared goal of Stop Hunger Now and Haiti Fund is that people become self-sufficient in providing for their health and welfare and achieve economic independence.
Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. The organization is driven by a vision of a world without hunger and a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.
In its efforts to respond to emergency needs around the world Stop Hunger Now receives and distributes significant donations of in-kind aid. These donations are large quantities of food, medicines, medical supplies and other such items as may be of use in fighting hunger and providing relief in a crisis.
