Hunger is on the rise. Haiti remains the poorest country in the Americas, with more than 6 million out of 10.4 million Haitians (59%) living below the national poverty line of US $2.41 per day and more than 2.5 million – an astonishing 24% of the population – living below the national extreme poverty line of US $1.23 per day.


HRI is working to Beat Hunger in Haiti with some of the greatest drummers, percussionists, and beat makers in the world including Stewart Copeland, Sheila E., Dame Evelyn Glennie, Kenny Aronoff, Stephen Perkins, Kristen Gleeson-Prata, Rico Nichols, and Mix Master Mike.


Using the hypnotic magic of percussive rhythms, Beat Hunger brings awareness to the ongoing need for nutritious food and support for millions of Haitians living in extreme poverty. While the headlines tapered off in Haiti a few years ago, the need remains at a critical level. Please, you can help Beat Hunger today.
