The current civil unrest in Haiti is threatening the food security of the Haitian people. Supply chains have been disrupted, stockpiles are dwindling, and food prices have skyrocketed.
We are partnering with the OPMAGAT farmers cooperative to invest in sustainable sources of food for families in Camp Perrin. It is planting season now. Haitian farmers are ready to take action if they can access the necessary supplies.
OPMAGAT has a plan to buy seeds for cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, leeks, and peppers, as well as rabbits for breeding. $3000 would provide 50 families with the supplies they need to have a sustainable source of food that will carry them through this instability.
That is just $60 per family.
We began working with OPMAGAT in 2016, when they spearheaded a community replanting program in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. We have seen firsthand what they are able to accomplish in challenging circumstances. They are committed to sustainable agriculture and we are proud to continue our partnership in this time of acute need.
