What we are doing
Action Against Hunger has worked in Myanmar since 1994, offering life-sustaining nutrition, food security, and water, sanitation, and hygiene support for vulnerable communities.
Our operational strategy in Myanmar is threefold:
- To treat and prevent acute malnutrition in infants under five, and pregnant and lactating women in the states of Rakhine and Kayah. We are delivering these services along with water, sanitation, hygiene, and infant-care practices.
- To reduce the impact of natural disasters on the very exposed coastal communities in Rakhine State.
- To give vulnerable people, pregnant and lactating women, infants under five, refugees or displaced people better access to basic services with the help of advocacy work.
As a member of several multi-partner consortiums, we are promoting the independence of international NGOs, defending humanitarian principles, as well as the implementation of common advocacy actions at a national and international level.
