Curing Animals, Curing Poverty


Do you know any Canadian households supporting 12 children? If you have, you’d know it’s a major feat. But for a farmer in Haiti, it can be nearly impossible. That was Bazelin’s situation before he became involved with Food for the Hungry. At forty-eight, he was tending his farm in Haiti, struggling to make ends meet for his family. Even though one of his children was an FH sponsor child, he still had the burden of paying the rest of his children’s school fees. Can you imagine, twelve mouths to feed, twelve bodies to clothe? In 2016, an opportunity arrived that Bazelin latched on to. FH began a Livelihood project to help local Haitians learn life skills. Bazelin learned practical veterinarian skills over the course of several training sessions. On top of that, he received a start-up veterinary drugs package from FH, which he used to treat sick animals in the community.


But his veterinary practice didn’t stop there. He used the profits from the treatments to grow his business and purchase more medication. He’s done this over and over again, growing his practice every time. And now, 3 years later, his situation has improved more than he ever dreamed. On a good day, Bazelin makes $25 USD. This is over five times the minimum daily wage of $4.75 in Haiti! With this income, he can shoulder the task of raising 12 children! Bazelin aims for an even greater future where he can learn more skills and take on more opportunities.
