Help Haiti Rebuild and Feed Itself
This petition had 927 supporters
In the wake of January's devastating earthquake, Haitian families are still struggling to find food - even as they face further damage from the approaching rainy season.
President Obama has asked Congress to approve a supplementary budget that would provide more aid to Haiti. If the food aid is given as cash, this could be a chance for Haitian farmers to restart their livelihoods and break the country's dependence on imported food.
While food aid is needed in the short term to avert hunger, as Haiti rebuilds, Haitian farmers around the countryside could be the ones feeding the people in Port-au-Prince.
The president's budget request could fix this broken system by helping Haiti rebuild itself from the inside out.
Help us make sure Congress understands what's at stake, and gives Haiti the right kind of aid.
Send your message to Congress now.
