At 4:53 p.m. Haiti time on January 12, 2010, a 7.0 earthquake devastated that country. More than 300,000 people died. Millions lost their homes and are still displaced, including thousands of children.
You can directly help these survivors through Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). Sixty stable, long-term FMSC partners get the nutritious MannaPack meals to places that other agencies simply can't reach. FMSC provides the meals—at no cost to our partners—for nearly 200 orphanages, clinics, missions, and feeding programs throughout Haiti.
With FMSC food on hand before the earthquake hit, these partners were able to help survivors long before other international aid arrived. Now feeding one-third more people than before the disaster, our Haiti partners expect a higher level of need for many months to come.
