About Haiti

Haiti has a history of instability. After a massive earthquake hit Haiti in 2010—one that decimated over 300,000 people—it became the poorest country in the West. In the wake of that event, 1.5 million people were left homeless. Of those that do have shelter, 75% lack running water. These unsanitary living conditions contribute to the high rate of disease. Haiti’s education system was setback as well and resources were moved toward those needs necessary for survival.

The situation in Haiti is currently very unpredictable and uncertain. An earthquake in August 2021, the assassination of President Moise, and the Covid situation make the security situation extremely unstable. Riots and looting are taking place in various parts of the country. In this poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, 80% of the population lives in abject poverty.

Hungry For Life works with different ministries in Haiti that support local communities. They share the love of Christ through their ministries to people who are living in darkness.
