Haitian Clay Mug
In Haiti, Feed My Starving Children works with 30 direct food partners who, last year, delivered over 78 million FMSC meals to schools, orphanages, and clinics throughout Haiti.
In desperate times, extremely poor families in Haiti will mix clay from the ground with water, oil and salt to create a clay "cookie". These clay cookies are eaten by adults and children in order to fill their stomachs when food is not available.
By transforming the same clay into these beautiful mugs, artisans from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti are able to sculpt their way out of poverty and support their families!
Size: Each mug is approximately 4 3/4 inches tall. It has a wide 4" base at the bottom of the mug with a more narrow 3 1/4" opening at the top: a perfect mug for drinking your morning coffee or tea!
Each mug comes with an insert telling the story of how these artisans are transforming clay from a desperate source of food to a sustainable source of income.
The mugs are lead-free and dishwasher safe - although, we recommend hand-washing the mugs to offer extra-care and enhance the longevity of your mug (as you would do with any other handmade, hand-glazed item).
Because each mug is handmade - Please let us know if your mug has a chip or crack that we missed upon inspection and we will replace it.
