At Middle Ground we are striving to come alongside families to introduce lasting solutions to hunger, poverty, and generational trauma.
Chronic hunger is an enormous problem plaguing Haitian families. More than one in ten children in Haiti are severely malnourished, and one in five is underweight. We at Middle Ground believe that every human has the right to a proper, well-balanced diet, and the positive health effects that come along with it!
Not being able to provide enough food for their children is one of the main reasons parents turn to alternative care in Haiti. Unfortunately, most readily available solutions involve removing children from their immediate families. These "solutions" range from institutions and orphanages, to situations where children are often vulnerable to abuse and human slavery. The reality of the lives of children in Haiti who are not in the care of their parents is sobering.
At Middle Ground we strive to not only offer intervention through emergency treatment of severe malnutrition, but also offer opportunities for families to provide for their children once they return home, through sustainability and education groups.
We believe that children have the right to grow up in their families, and that families have the right to provide their children’s basic needs through their own resources.
