Fighting Hunger for Haitian Families

Project Leader:

Sister Loretta Ciesielski

The Passionist Pastoral Center in Tabarre is sustained in large part by the efforts of local volunteers. Poor families in Haiti where a single mother is, often, head of household face dire hunger. An average family has five members and as challenging as it may be action is taken to reduce starvation and malnutrition. In order to offer support, twice per month, rice, beans, pasta and cooking oil is distributed to approximately 50 families. The mission of the community is “Many Hands One Heart.” The goal is to provide balanced meals and help people feel that this help is not a handout but that it is offered with God’s steadfast love, care.

COVID, HURRICANE SEASON AND HUNGER I live in St. Luc Hospital here in Haiti. 20 feet away from my room we have one of the few spaces in the Metropolitan Area open for COVID cases. Just on the other side of the fence that separates the wall of my room is the morgue. It is 10 ft. by 4 ft. fridge set on wooden pallets. Last night, I heard the thumping of the refrigerators being open by the staff. This meant one more person died due to COVID 19. This morning, the wailing of a middle-aged Haitian woman confirmed that death. This, unfortunately, is becoming very common at all hours of the day. To add to the precariousness of this moment, Hurricane Season is well underway. At least 16 storms are expected to become major hurricanes in the Caribbean this 2020 due to the rising temperature in the Atlantic sea surface. This is linked to climate change. For most Haitians, the temperature of food insecurity is also growing making life unbearable. According to the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) analysis (2019), the food security situation is expected to further deteriorate particularly during next year, with 4.1 million Haitians expected to suffer. In the midst of all this mess, Sant Pastoral Passionys (www.spphaiti.com) is committed to doing our part. We continue to fundraise to be able to provide food supplements for 50 families for the next year. One sack of rice, one sack of beans, and one gallon of cooking oil will not fix the great challenges that Haiti faces, but it will sure give them one more day to face them with all the dignity possible. May the Passion of Christ be always in our hearts! Fr. Hugo, CP

Chandrawiguna, Thank you for your recent donation. Your gift will assist Fr. Hugo, CP in purchasing supplemental foods to the impoverished families he lives with and ministers to each day. His hope of raising $3,000 a month to continue this program moves closer to its goal, thanks to you. Because of your generous assistance and faithful prayers, many in Haiti are fed, healed, safely sheltered and consoled through the ongoing ministries and pastoral care of Fr. Hugo. As we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit, Pentecost, know that my brother Passionists and I gratefully remember you and your loved ones in our Masses and prayers during this time. In this uncertain and difficult time, may you know all the joy and hope Our Risen Lord promises each of us! May the Passion of Christ be always in our hearts!
