This is the only meal nearly 50% of those we serve will eat in a 24-hour period.
“An empty stomach has no ears” is a well-known phrase in Haiti. Trinity/HOPE understands that when a child is SO hungry they can’t concentrate, their education suffers. Haiti’s future depends on the education of the upcoming generation.
48% of Haitians over the age of 15 are illiterate.
Every school Trinity HOPE feeds is a Christian school, actively teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a regular basis. Many schools are tied to the local community church.
Approximately 60% of the Haitian population practices Voodoo. 95% of the children we feed come to believe in Jesus Christ.
We are called to help
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.Matthew 25:35,40
