Haiti struggles to cope with food crisis

Food prices increased after most of the country’s rice crops were destroyed by a hurricane.

Haiti is facing yet another crisis. A hurricane in August destroyed most of the country’s rice crops, adding pressure to a food shortage, and increasing prices of the country’s main staple food.

The government has begun importing an extra 300,000 bags of rice to ease the situation. But the response to the problem is only short term.
