Your support in action

Action Against Hunger takes a comprehensive approach to global hunger.

Thanks to your compassion, we are able to integrate activities in nutrition, food security, water and sanitation, health, and advocacy. In addition, we address the social, organizational, and technical challenges that cause hunger.

We provide emergency relief and focus on severe malnutrition, while also tackling underlying causes and working with local systems to transform short-term interventions into sustainable, long-term solutions. That includes a community-centred approach that involves local skills development.
