Action Against Hunger

Excerpted from the action against hunger website 

 

FOR FOOD. AGAINST HUNGER AND MALNUTRITION.
FOR CLEAN WATER. AGAINST KILLER DISEASES.
FOR FREEDOM FROM HUNGER. FOR EVERYONE. FOR GOOD. 
FOR ACTION. AGAINST HUNGER. 
For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, we have led the global fight against hunger. We save the lives of children and their families. We are there for them before and after disaster strikes. We enable people to provide for themselves, see their children grow up strong, and for whole communities to prosper. We constantly search for more effective solutions, while sharing our knowledge and expertise with the world. We push for long-term change. We will never give up. Until the world is free from hunger.
  • Lifesaving impact in nearly 50 countries
  • 6,500+ field staff assisting more than 14.7 million people 
  • 35+ years of expertise responding to emergencies caused by conflict, natural disasters and food crises
Our global efforts save hundreds of thousands of lives each year, but millions of undernourished children remain in need of lifesaving treatment.
WHY OUR WORK MATTERS
About 815 million people go to bed hungry every night, and one in three children in low- and middle-income countries suffers from chronic undernutrition. Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are from causes related to undernutrition, even though it’s:
  1. PREDICTABLE: We know where and when to expect acute undernutrition
  2. PREVENTABLE: We know how to help children stay healthy
  3. TREATABLE:  Community-based outpatient programs and therapeutic ready-to-use foods can help save millions, and just $45 can provide a child with lifesaving treatment
We know how to save undernourished children if we can reach them. 
WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
We dedicate as much of our funding as possible to our lifesaving humanitarian programs.
In 2015, we spent $0.93 of every donated dollar on program activities
