Vouchers energise despite devastating drought
Hundreds of thousands of people are facing hunger as an El Niño-related drought takes its toll in the Island of La Gonave, Haiti. To reduce its impact, World Vision Haiti with the support of USAID, is distributing vouchers used to purchase food to enhance nutrition of the most vulnerable children and families.
World Vision is committed to partnering with the people of Haiti to rebuild their lives today and to help enact sustainable solutions for the future of their children, families, and communities. World Vision’s child sponsorship program plays a vital role in this partnership. In addition to sponsorship, World Vision operates other programs that benefit communities in Haiti.
