In 1971, as Food for the Hungry became an official organization, Haiti was one of the first countries FH helped during an emergency response. In the early 2000s, FH began an HIV/AIDS prevention and care program in Port-au-Prince. On January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck and killed approximately 230,000 people. FH staff responded immediately and has since continued long-term development work to help Haitians recover. Click on icons to see how FH is working with Haitian communities.
