  • About the event

    Each year, The Children's Nutrition Program of Haiti hosts an awards ceremony and dinner to celebrate our successes and honor those who contribute to our life-saving work. January 12, 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the catastrophic earthquake that took the lives of over 230,000 people in Haiti. The epicenter of that quake was in Leogane, just miles from the Children's Nutrition Program headquarters. To commemorate this event, our 2020 Benefit will remember the lives lost in the earthquake and celebrate the everyday heroes who continue to help Haiti to build a firm foundation.

    Why should you sponsor?

    As we look forward to our 2020 Benefit, we are anticipating our most successful fundraising event to date. Our goal is to secure 20 sponsors, with corporate sponsors comprising at least 20% of the total sponsors.

    We hope to have at least 250 attendees in 2020. The majority of our attendees will be Chattanooga residents. With a renewed focus on younger audiences, we hope to see an increased number of attendees. Many attendees will be long-term supporters of our organization, while others will be their guests, many of whom will be learning about the Children's Nutrition Program of Haiti for the first time.

    Over 2.5 million Haitians live in extreme poverty and many die from conditions that would be preventable elsewhere. Malnutrition presents a significant threat to the health and well being of Haitians, where almost 1 in 4 children suffer from malnutrition.

    The Children’s Nutrition Program of Haiti, known locally as Kore Timoun, was founded in 1998 and seeks to prevent and treat malnutrition by focusing on its root causes. We work alongside communities and in collaboration with the local health system and partnering non-profit organizations in Haiti’s Léogâne region. Committed to empowerment, not charity, we provide Haitian-led solutions to malnutrition and maternal health problems.

    We were founded by a Chattanooga-area cardiologist, Dr. Mitch Mutter, after he witnessed first-hand the devastation caused by malnutrition in Haiti. Our work is focused in Haiti, yet our organization is deeply rooted in the Chattanooga community, where our US offices are based.
