Peace After the Storm

During MCC’s Hurricane Matthew response, local leaders in Wondo and Wopisa expressed their need for long-term food security. There was a desire to rebuild gardens, livestock, and strengthen their community as a whole. Local leaders saw the potential for these communities to respond by supporting one another rather than fighting for aid. In response, MCC launched a 2-year food security project that would provide opportunities for peacebuilding in both communities.

Ti Mango's Living Pantry: Growing Food Security in Kabay

Judiuc Lundi was born in Haiti in the mango season. His mother called him Ti Mango, or “little mango” in Creole, and the nickname stuck. Ti Mango, proudly shows off his thriving garden in the agricultural community of Kabay, tucked into the rolling hills of Haiti’s Artibonite department.

Ti Mango’s plot of land extends down the slope of a hill into an unevenly formed valley, demonstrating the skill that rural farmers like him must possess to farm such tough mountainous terrain in Haiti.
