Children’s Programs

Did you know:

  • Over half of all Haitian children suffer from chronic malnutrition. The average Haitian eats only one meal a day, meaning many do not eat at all?
  •  Approximately 30% of children attending primary school will not make it to third grade; 60% will abandon school before sixth grade?
  •  Although Haiti has nearly 1,000 orphanages, they are not orphanages in the conventional sense? Some families, who cannot afford to care for all their children, send some of the children to live in orphanages.
  •  50% of primary school age Haitian children are not enrolled in school?
  •  One third of girls over six years old do not go to school?

Family Health Ministries is committed to improving the lives of the children of Haiti. FHM provides nutritional, medical, and education support for children in the mountain community of Fondwa.
