What we are doing
Active in Peru since 2007, Action Against Hungers' in-country teams carry out a range of food security programs that aim to combat child malnutrition and reducing anaemia. Since the El Niño phenomenon, we have continued to work in Puno to reduce risks and improve housing and production although much of our work has focused on the humanitarian response to the flooding in Piura.
Our activities in Peru also include strengthening government health systems and community-based organisations to:
- Improve information systems
- Promote breastfeeding
- Strengthen commitments to biofortification and nutritional supplements for children under three years
- Providing access to clean water and rebuilding irrigation systems to support vulnerable communities in rural Peru
