WHAT WE ARE DOING
Action Against Hunger has worked in Mauritania since 2007, providing support to men, women and children with nutritional support.
Some of the programmes is Mauritania include:
- Prevention and treatment of malnutrition in children in the south and east.
- Helping provide access to resources like food, water and land is crucial for the livelihoods of both the refugee populations and host communities.
- Supporting those in Mberra refugee camp on the border with Mali, delivering water and sanitation programmes
In addition, we’re helping families and small-scale farmers to grow food and improve their diets by training them to diversify their crops so they can weather food insecurity shocks during the hunger gap - the period of routine scarcity between harvests.
