What does $106K+ Do?
Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization on a mission to end global hunger. We save the lives of severely malnourished children and help communities become self-sufficient in more than 46 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 helped transform 13.6 million lives in 2014!
Malnutrition is predictable, preventable, and treatable. We know when and where deadly malnutrition is likely to strike and can restore severely malnourished children to health with 90-95% success rates.
We engage local communities to determine what is causing hunger, and then create a plan to provide the tools, capital, and training to put people on the road to self-sufficiency.
As part of our integrated approach to hunger, we bring safe water, sanitation,and hygiene services to communities in need all over the world.
From cholera epidemics sweeping through refugee camps, to catastrophic natural disasters, to spikes in malnutrition rates brought on by drought, Action Against Hunger delivers immediate lifesaving services to populations in distress.
Your support helps us reach malnourished children all over the world -- children like Moubararak, an eight month old from Burkina Faso.

The donations Action Against Hunger received from Research For Good last year allowed us to provide nutritional assistance to more than 2,368 children below 5 years of age, worldwide. Knowing that Research for Good is a growing company in the market research industry, we are excited about the continued partnership between our organizations in 2016. Just imagine the positive global impact Market Researchers could have if the Research For Good model were adopted by the entire industry. We are also very honored and proud to be their sole charity partner this year.
On behalf of Action Against Hunger’s dedicated staff around the world and the communities we serve, thank you for your continued generosity and support!
