For children age 5 and under, a healthy, nutritious diet is the foundation for a healthy life. Haiti’s child malnutrition rate is the highest in the Caribbean, the result of wide spread poverty, a shortage of health care facilities, frequent hurricanes and the earthquake in 2010.

To improve the chances for Haitian children to thrive, Catholic Relief Services is improving health clinics and forming mother’s clubs.  Through the clubs, mothers learn to cook well balanced meals, grow vegetables and spot the signs of malnutrition; they even save money for their future needs as a group.
