WELCOME For more than 30 years, Action Against Hunger has led the way in restoring dignity, selfsufficiency, and independence to vulnerable populations around the world.
With global operations spread across more than 40 countries—in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe—Action Against Hunger | ACF International is adept at tackling the devastating problem of world hunger with lifesaving programs that benefit nearly five million people each year. United by a common vision of a world without hunger and a shared approach to preventing and treating malnutrition, our program staff include committed professionals from around the globe—French nutritionists, Kenyan nurses, Pakistani water engineers, American agronomists, along with drivers, logistics coordinators, human resource specialists, and a broad range of others with technical expertise from virtually all corners of the map. By collaborating with local communities, Action Against Hunger implements programs that help families, villages, and entire communities regain self-sufficiency. Thanks to our pioneering innovations and perseverance, we’re able to restore health and independence to countless people faced with life-threatening forms of malnutrition. And for the most vulnerable, especially young children and pregnant women, our help can mean the difference between life and death. In recent years, we have made tremendous progress in preventing people from dying of acute malnutrition, but there are still an estimated 3.5 million children lost each year from hunger-related causes. Fortunately, solutions are within reach. We know how to treat acute malnutrition, and how to detect and prevent it. And with the latest nutritional products, combined with our approach to developing long-term food security and access to clean water and sanitation, we seek to end hunger as a cause of premature death for children the world over. With the support of international agencies, government funding, private corporations, and concerned individuals worldwide, we’re working to put the ravages of acute malnutrition alongside polio and the plague as a measure of humanity’s progress in defeating unnecessary suffering and death. n
