Images from a USAID Rice Trip in Haiti:
As we have discussed as a class and as a school, hunger in Haiti is a pressing issue and it isn't just going to go away. The photos above are from my Mother-in-Law, Ann's, trip to Haiti before the earthquake. If this is the level of hunger before the earthquake, imagine the devastation that the earthquake has caused. Imagine how long these line-ups are today. The parents and children within these images are desperately seeking nourishment for their families, remember Peter Eyvindson's comment that some families are only able to eat once every three days? Ann mentioned that there were women and children literally chasing after the rice trucks as they attemted to pull away. What can we do as Canadian youth in order to generate awareness and keep these issues at the top of the minds of our friends and family? Who else can we generate awareness for?
