Haiti suffers from the multi-faceted problems of poverty, lack of infrastructure, corruption, illiteracy and an unstable government.

In addition to these systemic issues, on January 12, 2010, Haiti was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake killing hundreds of thousands and leaving many more homeless.

Perhaps those most affected by these issues are Haiti’s orphans. After the earthquake, many orphanages, most of which were already struggling to take care of and provide for the children in their care, suffered extensive damage and even loss of life turning what was a dire situation to begin with into a nightmare.

One More Child is currently partnering with three organizations that operate orphanages in Haiti. Our role is to assist these organizations with their feeding programs to ensure that these children are receiving adequate food and nutrition on a daily basis.
