The Caribbean is also covered on this page since it is in between North America and South America and the solution for Cuba and Haiti is the same as the rest of the page's.
First you will get the basic facts in Cuban hunger. There are about 11 million people living on this island off the coast of Florida. The eastern part that has Guantánamo, Granma, Santiago de Cuba, Las Tunas, Holguín, and Camagüey. Also the effect is that it imports 80% of the food so sometimes there is not enough. The main effect is a disease called anemia. This very serious disease is mainly caused by hunger. The WFP also has activities in Cuba and this is what they are doing. First, they are trying to reduce anemia in children 6 months to 5 years. Also they are trying to improve food habits of when and what people eat. Also they are increasing food amounts on the island.
Haiti is currently in a hunger crisis after a series of hurricanes and tropical storms hit them. Many were killed, homes were lost, and arable land was destroyed, putting more than 700,000 under the poverty line and into hunger. People are at a high risk of getting HIV and tuberculosis. At least 3.3 million need food aid and cannot be reached by road, since the storms destroyed most of the roads and crops. The way to prevent this from happening is increase national disaster responsiveness, but for the moment organizations like Habitat for Humanity and WFP are needed. 76% of Haitians live with less than $2 a day and 56% with less than $1 a day.
