Action Against Hunger UK
Action Against Hunger UK is part of the Action Against Hunger International network, one of the leading international organisations in the fight against hunger and malnutrition.
The aim of Action Against Hunger is to save lives by combating hunger, diseases, and those crises threatening the lives of helpless men, women and children.
Our primary objective is to assist the victims of hunger. Each year, Action Against Hunger's international network directly brings relief to more than 3 million people a year in around 40 countries , saving the lives of malnourished children and assisting families towards self sufficiency.
Action Against Hunger intervenes in the following situations:
- In natural or man-made disasters which threaten food security or result in famine.
- In situations of social/economic breakdown, linked to internal or external circumstances which place particular groups of people in extremely vulnerable positions.
- In situations where survival depends on humanitarian aid.
Action Against Hunger brings assistance either during the crisis itself through emergency intervention, or afterwards through rehabilitation and sustainable development programmes. Its activities include the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of malnutrition and programmes of food security, agriculture and water and sanitation.
The ultimate goal of all Action Against Hunger's programmes is to enable the beneficiaries to regain their autonomy and self-sufficiency as soon as possible.
