How We Save Lives
Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization on a mission to end deadly hunger. We save the lives of severely malnourished children and help communities become self-sufficient in more than 40 countries worldwide.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to hunger, so we take a holistic approach: tackling both immediate threats and the root causes of hunger. Our work saves hundreds of thousands of lives and transforms more nine million more each year!

Your support helps us reach malnourished children all over the world -- children like Zameer, a six-month-old boy in Dadu District, Pakistan.
The first 1,000 days of development -- from a mother’s pregnancy to her child’s second birthday -- is a critical window for good nutrition that gives children the healthy start they need to thrive. But Zameer’s mother Benazir had a very difficult pregnancy, and didn’t get the nutrition she needed to support her health or her baby’s.
So Zameer was born underweight. And at six months old, he had trouble nursing, so he still wasn’t gaining weight. Afraid for her son’s life, Benazir brought him to a community health clinic supported by Action Against Hunger.
There, Zameer was diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition-- the most serious form of malnutrition, which claims more than three million young lives every year. Zameer was dangerously close to losing his fight against hunger, but he was able to get the care he needed at the health center.
While we gave Zameer therapeutic food to help him gain weight, we taught his mother good nursing and hygiene techniques, so she can keep him healthy after treatment. Now, Zameer has recovered, and his mother brings him back to the health center for regular check-ups to make sure he continues to thrive.
Our programs are restoring health and hope throughout Pakistan. In the past six months alone, we have provided essential nutrition and health support for more than 96,400 people across Pakistan—including more than 9,650 malnourished children just like Zameer.
