World hunger is on the rise. Shockingly, more than
810 million people still go to bed hungry every night.

Food supply disruptions caused by conflict in places like Ukraine and Yemen are increasing prices, and frequent extreme weather like droughts and typhoons are making it harder for farmers to grow crops. With the economic impact of Covid-19 still ongoing, the risk has never been greater.

We work in 46 countries around the world fighting hunger and malnutrition. In 2020 our programmes reached 25 million people.

Now’s the time to pull together to turn the tide on this global hunger crisis.

Why your support matters

Action Against Hunger treat more malnourished children than any other charity. We won’t give up until the world is free from hunger, but many more children need our help.

With your support, we can:

  • ensure access to healthy, nutritious food
  • provide clean water, good hygiene and health services
  • train more community health workers to treat malnourished children
  • inform more families about how to stay healthy and prevent more children from dying
  • provide emergency support to families fleeing conflict

Life-saving treatments are cheaply available and extremely effective. You can help us scale up our work to reach more children in need.
