The Te Wouj Project – Project Based Food Assistance

The Te Wouj Project – Incarnation’s Three Year Commitment to Te Wouj, Haiti

The Te Wouj Project is Incarnation’s commitment to finance and pack a container of 272,160 FMSC meals for Te Wouj, Haiti, a tiny remote community near Jeremie, Haiti, for three consecutive years. This area formerly known as the bread basket of Haiti, was hard hit by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. As a part of a Project Based Food Assistance initiative with Feed My Starving Children, Incarnation will contribute to daily food dedicated to the 831 residents of Te Wouj. We are eager to see how this community will grow and reach sustainability; we also look forward to seeing this three year relationship unfold and the opportunities to engage with God’s children of Te Wouj, through prayers, photos, story telling and of course, food. God will transform Te Wouj and Incarnation through this food commitment.

What is a Project Based Food Assistance Initiative?

Through Feed My Starving Children’s Project Based Food Assistance initiatives, distribution partners, churches and local leaders within a specific region come together to help their community. For a period of time, individuals and communities receive a consistent supply of FMSC food to empower them to rise out of poverty and become self-reliant.

FMSC has determined that when intentional application of food assistance occurs for one to five years, in a clearly defined geographical area, there is decreased hunger-related illness and financial burden on those community members and administering ministries. When communities and individuals can count on a consistent supply of food for a specific time frame, they can utilize available resources to focus on other activities that help transform their community from chronic hunger to self-sustainability.
