USAID: Food security program launched to combat hunger in Dominican Republic and Haiti

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Batey Relief Alliance (BRA) has launched for the fifth consecutive year a food security program by which 243.88 metric tons of food will be distributed to 25,600 people in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. This program, funded by USAID's Food for Peace Office-International Food Relief Partnership (IFRP), responds to the continuing efforts by both organizations to combat hunger and reduce poverty within the most vulnerable and impoverished urban slums and rural "batey" communities of the Dominican Republic and villages in Southeastern border regions of Haiti.
