Feeding  
 

OIH operates the only food distribution center in Bombardopolis, Haiti.  We began by feeding our orphans three hot meals a day.  When we opened our school, offering free education to the village children, we expanded our program to include feeding these students one hot meal a day.  This was not enough.  Starving people from the village came to the OIH facility asking us to please help them feed their families.  So, OIH did the only thing that we could do...feed them!  With the migration of earthquake victims to the Bombardopolis area, the need for food has become even greater.  To make the OIH feeding program successful, we need individuals, organizations or churches to partner with us who are willing to pledge finances to help with this ongoing mission outreach.

Feeding the Community
 
Food Distribution in August 2008 
                  OIH's feeding program also includes distributing food to the many needy people in
                  Bombardopolis.  OIH   prepared   hundreds  of   bags  of  cornmeal  and   flour   in 
                  August  2008 and  distributed  them to a long  line of  people who walked for miles  
                  to reach the OIH center. Many people waited for hours outside the tiny OIH church 
                  that was  converted into  a food  center for  the day.  Although  the  morning  hours
                  were spent  bagging  food  in a  room  that  quickly  turned  into a  sauna from  the
                  rising  temperature  and  lack of  air  flow, the  smiles and  hugs of  gratitudes from  
                  the recipients  were  worth  every second  to the volunteers.
