Action Against Hunger is challenging you to be involved in the next step against global hunger. Hunger claims 1 million young lives every year, but for the first time in history, game changing solutions are within our reach. Using ready-to-use therapeutic foods, we can now treat children at home, and save lives at a scale never before imagined.
Founded in 1979, Action Against Hunger has over 5,000 staff in 43 countries. Our innovative contributions have paved the way for this historic opportunity: ending deadly hunger.
In 1993, our revolutionary milk formula slashed mortality rates by 75% for severe malnutrition.
In 1997, our milk formula becomes Plumpy’nut, the first ever ready-to-use therapeutic food, which can now save millions of young lives if brought to scale.
These developments, alongside our food security, emergency response and water & sanitation programs give us a holistic plan to win the ﬁght against hunger.
Each year, we save hundreds of thousands of malnourished children using ready-to-use therapeutic foods. Thanks to #Team45 members, we can treat even more children in need around the world.
At 18 months old, Mariam weighed less than 10 pounds. Her health was so fragile that we gave her round-the-clock care with therapeutic milk. Soon, she was stable enough to be treated at home with ready-to-use therapeutic foods. She’s now a healthy, happy toddler.
Siham’s mother developed severe anemia in a Kenyan refugee camp after fleeing famine in Somalia. Fortunately, our lifesaving support helped her recover before delivering her beautiful, healthy daughter. Siham is now thriving in pre-school!
The food crisis that struck Africa’s Sahel left Assama desperate to feed her 8-month-old son, Ousmane. She trekked over five miles to get him the medical attention he needed, and we provided tiny Ousmane with a full course of therapeutic treatment. Now Assama is hopeful for her future, and for her son’s.
