In Haiti, PWS&D is working to support children suffering from malnutrition and reduce vulnerability to climate change and food insecurity.
Alongside civil society leaders and local authorities, PWS&D is working with vulnerable communities to raise awareness of climate change, build resilience to the effects, and increase food security.
In a country where over one million people are food insecure and agricultural production only meets 43% of food needs, this work is more essential than ever.
By teaching about soil conservation, agricultural techniques that require less water, seed and fertilizer, and strengthening solid waste management systems, PWS&D partners are helping address the needs of families and communities for today and for the future.
For young children, a lack of proper food at critical development stages can lead to delays in growth and other health issues. Through support for mobile clinics and community health workers, PWS&D is treating and strengthening children under the age of five who suffer from malnutrition so that they can lead happy, healthy lives.
