Four-year-old Rodrick was treated for malnutrition at an Action Against Hunger treatment centre in Tanzania.

Meet Roderick

See the inspiring story of Rodrick’s recovery from severe malnutrition.

We think it’s unacceptable that, in a world that produces enough food to feed its entire population, over 3 billion people can’t even afford the cheapest healthy diet.

Regular gifts like yours provide vital funding for our work saving the lives of malnourished children in some of the world’s hardest-to-reach and worst affected places.

We empower people to provide for themselves, see their children grow up strong, and help their communities prosper.

Please watch the short film below to discover more of Rodrick’s story and his remarkable recovery from severe malnutrition.
