  3. 3. Problems Faced by Haitians 2.5 million Haitians live in extreme poverty. (Population 10,110,019) ⅔ Haitians live on less than $2 USD per day, while half of the population earn less than $1 USD per day. 50% of the Urban population are unemployed. 100,000 under 5 years of age suffer from acute malnutrition, and their height is stunted. Less than 50% of households have access to safe water and only 25% benefit from adequate sanitation. ⅓ of Haitian women and children are anemic.
  4. 4. Although agriculture is an important sector in Haiti’s economy, the country fails to produce enough food, and imports more than 50% of its population’s needs. It imports 80% of its main staple: rice. 90% of farmers depend on rain for harvest because only 10% of crops are irrigated.
