Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Decades of political turmoil and natural disasters have caused widespread suffering, especially for Haiti's children. But life is even harder for people living on a small island off the coast. On the island of La Gonâve, 1 in 5 children die before the age of 5. Years of natural disasters have depleted the soil, and importing food is expensive. Because so many of the island's children suffer from malnutrition, recovering from illnesses such as malaria, typhoid, and polio is especially difficult. Equally alarming is the fact that 90% of the island's residents live far from a hospital.
GreaterGood.org is implementing programs to address issues that disproportionately affect children, such as a broken educational system, malnutrition, and infectious disease.
With your support, a Community Health Workers can provide much needed medical care to the residents of La Gonâve. One Community Health Worker can save hundreds of lives each year by treating illnesses, providing vitamin A supplements, and vaccinating children against deadly diseases, such as polio. There is no need for these children to suffer.
You can help. Just $3.75 per day helps provide much needed medical care and supplies to children in Haiti.
