He was worried about Haiti — so he went out for a little walk

"The Minneapolis resident completed the trip by his July 4 deadline, raising nearly $30,000 for the international organization Action Against Hunger. The group is helping survivors of the Jan. 12 Haitian earthquake, which killed 230,000 and left 700,000 homeless. Action Against Hunger has been working in Haiti since 1985.

In Haiti's tent cities, a return to normalcy is unimaginable

"Around a turn, neighbors lined up to fill plastic buckets with water from a large undulating orange bladder, imprinted with Action Contre la Faim. Fresh water, latrines, medical needs -- the stuff needed to fend off an epidemic -- come from non-government organizations. And they also illustrate the great dilemma facing post-earthquake Port-au-Prince. The NGOs, acting in the stead of a weak government, fend off disease and starvation in these squalid camps.

Man Walks Across America for Haiti

"One man is taking a creative approach to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. NewsCentral’s Linnie Supall explains how he’s walking across America to raise money for the cause. So far Jordan raised $25,000 for the ‘Action Against Hunger’ Organization to help the people in Haiti."

Help wells up to solve a Haitian problem

"But just outside the tent was a yellow rubber bladder the size of a small swimming pool, framed by cinder blocks. Action Contre la Faim, an international NGO, had supplied the 10,000-liter vessel."

Haiti criticized over forced stadium eviction

"PORT-AU-PRINCE - The aid group Action Against Hunger on Sunday slammed Haiti's forced evictions of hundreds of homeless quake victims from the pitch of the country's national stadium. 'We are shocked at the way it has happened. There is no planning. There is no solution offered to the people who lived in the stadium,'  unlike people evacuated from other camps, said Lucille Grosjean, spokeswoman for the France-based organization."

Haiti Relief: We Came Together!

On March 29th, a group of individuals stopped by Action Against Hunger's office in New York City to present us with a donation raised by the students and faculty of City College of San Francisco’s John Adams Campus. Here is their inspiring story:

Farmington native, jobless college grad plans long walk to benefit Haitians

"On Saturday, Dibb will begin a 100-day walk from Lake Calhoun to Miami — 1,800 miles — to raise $100,000 for survivors of the Jan. 12 Haitian earthquake, which killed 230,000 and left 700,000 homeless. The money will go to Action Against Hunger, an international agency assisting in Haiti since 1985. The group has partnered before with other adventure seekers before Dibb. In 2008, Jack Sisson rollerbladed 3,000 miles from Virginia to California to raise $10,000 for the organization. Sophie Denis climbed Mount Everest that year, raising $3,000.

World Water Week: Rebuilding sanitation facilities in Haiti

"The sanitation services in this camp are managed by Action Contre la Faim (ACF), with UNICEF's support. Two days after the earthquake, the water and sanitation system in Champ de Mars was launched. The response was agile because UNICEF and ACF were already working in Haiti before the earthquake. To date, ACF has installed 400 portable latrines in Champ de Mars."

1,800 Miles for Haiti

If a good, long walk can clear a person’s head, Jordan Dibb may soon have one of the clearest heads in the world. He’s getting ready to walk from Minneapolis to Miami to raise money for Action Against Hunger’s emergency relief efforts in Haiti.

Hoofin' it for Haiti

"On March 27, Dibb will leave Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to begin an 1,800-mile journey to Miami. He's not sure whether he'll make it all the way to Haiti. But he is hoping to raise $100,000 for Action Against Hunger, an international relief agency that loved his extreme fundraising idea. 'We had a guy roller-blade across the United States last summer and a woman climb Mount Everest last year,' said Barbara McKinnon, external relations officer for the organization. 'But Jordan is our first cross-country walker.'"
