Did you know that one in five children in Haiti are malnourished, and one in fourteen will die before reaching the age of five?*
Childhood malnutrition is a serious problem in Haiti’s Central Plateau, where St. Joseph Clinic is located.
Our Medika Mamba Program is working to reverse this heartbreaking situation by providing a nutritional supplement that restores 90% of severely malnourished children to health in two to three months. Until recently, the Haitian government provided the Medika Mamba supplements, but due to government funding shortages, it no longer does so. We need your help to keep this critical program running!
