Since the arrival of the first influx of people in August 2017, Action Against Hunger has responded to the most urgent needs: mobile distribution of hot meals, water and psychological support. In the past year, more than 700,000 individuals have benefited from Action Against Hunger support in the form of nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, mental support and care practices, food security and livelihoods.
Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, and it’s entirely manmade. The situation is grim: after three years of war that officially killed nearly 10,000 people, and unofficially caused many others, the UN (United Nations) estimates that 80% of its people need humanitarian assistance.
Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger.
We save the lives of severely malnourished children while helping communities become self-sufficient. Recognized as a world leader in the fight against malnutrition, Action Against Hunger has pursued its vision of a world without hunger for almost four decades, combating hunger in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity. With more than 7,500 staff in more than 50 countries, our programs in nutrition, food security, livelihoods, water, sanitation, and hygiene, reach more than 20 million people each year.
