Blog entry Your Rice Is Helping Haiti

12 January 2011

One year ago, following the devastating earthquake in Haiti that killed thousands and left millions without homes and food, Freericers helped by raising rice!

The World Food Programme is still on the ground helping to rebuild lives. Food assistance is still needed. 1 in 4 children in Haiti are chronically malnourished. For this reason, all rice raised through Freerice from January 2011 will go to helping the people of Haiti.

Stephanie Tremblay, WFP's Public Information Officer based in Haiti, said: "As Haiti starts to rebuild, our goal is to help Haiti get to the point where it can feed itself. However, for now, food assistance and the rice (like the rice raised through Freerice) still has a key role to play."

Click here to test your Haiti hunger IQ – and feed a child in Haiti (it cost you nothing but brain cells)

In addition to testing your knowledge, for every person who takes this short Haiti hunger quiz, a child in Haiti will receive a warm meal thanks to an anonymous donor to WFP.

Four questions, one happy child in Haiti. It takes a moment.

After you’ve taken the quiz, be sure to ask your friends and family to do the same.

I'm really happy to give rice to people who needs them and I'm really thankful for this game because I can also practice (or learn) my english vocab, since English is my second language :)

May God bless this program and people who are willing to help.

in my opinion, i think too much rice is going to hatie, everyone is forgetting Pakistan and India, sri Lanka, those poeple, with floods, everyone forgot them

Thu, 01/20/2011 - 06:08 ammadxx1

for srocks
for each question is 10 grains, so you donaated 30 grains,

my question: does 100 grains equal one person, and 1,000 grains equal 10 people

Wed, 01/19/2011 - 06:20 srocks345

I just did the quiz, and how much rice does it sent? I got 3 out of 4 questions right.

Wed, 01/19/2011 - 03:58 ammadxx1

i dont think this is a good idea, there are still people in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and maybe India, but there were terrible floods there, i think that some of the rice should go there too.

(I'm korean, so my grammar may not be correct, but please understand)
How can I send the rice that I collected?

Mon, 01/17/2011 - 03:48 ILoveHedley27

I Love Free rice I go on this website almost every time I'm on the computer because I know I can help people in Haiti so they can have a better life and I 'm only 12 going to be 13. I've raised a lot of rise 5 or 6 1000 and I just love it. I would be wishing for someone to help if there was a earthquake in Canada, so that's why I'm asking for anyone who cares to grab hold and help Haiti to recover=D "PLEASE HELP THEM"!!!!!!!
