For about two months, Haiti has been facing one of the darkest periods in its history.
The country is suffering from violent protests, robberies, and roadblocks, which erupted due to an increase in fuel prices. There are widespread demands for the resignation of the president.
A 19.5% inflation rate has resulted in a drastic increase in the cost of food and fuel (if any can be found). Poverty is on the rise, schools are closed, and our Haitian sponsored children and families are struggling to survive.
Our Haiti South Sponsor Site is located in the southwest corner of Haiti and works in five communities: Latiboliere, Jérémie, Previle, Roseaux, and Carrefour-Sanon. The site is having difficulty in receiving food orders from Port-au-Prince due to the level of insecurity. The sponsor site director has asked Chalice for $35,000 to feed 1336 families. The site has determined the best method to supply relief to sponsored families is for a food distribution for areas where it is easier to get a bulk food order with the remaining sponsored children to receive money into their direct family funding accounts so their guardians can purchase food locally.
During this time of political unrest, it is always the most vulnerable who are most affected. By working together, it is hoped we can help them during this challenging time.
