Haitian Chicken Farm
May 1, 2018 Update: 200 brand new little laying hens were just delivered. These little hens are getting good quality feed and CLEAN water from a well. Their habitat is now constructed to eliminate the fear of predators sneaking in.
*Other chickens in Haiti roam freely, eating garbage and drink only contaminated water. Gross, right?! And do you know what that means? Gross eggs, too.
And if you remember our last update –> In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew did a number the chickens, and their habitat in Haiti. The majority of chickens at this farm did not survive the strong winds and storms. So we begin again.
The Plan: To raise these little chicks to be strong and healthy so that they lay healthy, good eggs. And then, first priority is going to be for widows and single mothers to sell these eggs at market so that they can take care of their families.
The wonderful byproduct of this is that other families will have access to these good eggs to nourish their families.
A little more about the farmer: His name is Charles, and he is committed to doing what he can for the people of Haiti, especially for his local community. Charles lives in Arcahaie, Haiti with his wife, Lonie, and two children Joshua and Shenica.
*Every few months, as donations are collected for Haitian Chicken Farm, money is sent via Western Union directly to Charles in Haiti.
