ACTION CONTRE LA FAIM’S MISSION IS TO FIGHT HUNGER AND SAVE LIVES THROUGH THE PREVENTION, DETECTION AND TREATMENT OF MALNUTRITION, ESPECIALLY DURING AND AFTER EMERGENCY SITUATIONS LINKED TO CONFLICTS AND NATURAL DISASTERS.
We take action on the ground every day, as close to vulnerable populations as possible. Action contre la Faim’s work is characterised by multi-sector expertise and a global approach represented by our seven areas of activity.
Action contre la Faim’s humanitarian deployment is organised according to the entity’s areas of expertise. As the causes of hunger are multiple, Action contre la Faim’s multi-dimensional expertise helps to fight hunger effectively.
As part of our transparency policy, we want to outline all our activities on the ground in 2021: our emergency responses, security incidents we encountered, our research and innovation work, our income and our expenses, our partners… Basically, everything Action contre la Faim did in 2021.
Our Nutrition and Health programme aims to detect and treat malnutrition among the most vulnerable and to deliver basic care.
The Mental Health, Care Practices, Gender and Protection programme seeks to integrate the human, psychological and cultural dimensions into the causes of malnutrition, so that it can be prevented and contained more effectively.
The Food Security and Livelihoods programme exists to prevent malnutrition and situations of famine. The action taken to support agriculture and livestock farming, income-generating activities and assistance for shopkeepers and markets help economic and social activities to resume for good and promote a nutritious, balanced diet for fragile populations.
The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programme is designed to ensure nutrition security through constant, sufficient access to clean drinking water, to adequate hygiene practices and to the appropriate sanitation infrastructures.
In 2021, we assisted 5.7 million people with our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene expertise. For example, we built or renovated 1,775 hand-washing facilities.
The goal of the Risk and Disaster Management programme is to prepare for natural disasters, to help populations when they occur, and to reduce their impact.
In 2021, there were 601,000 beneficiaries of our Risk and Disaster Management assistance.
The Advocacy programme’s objective is to influence political and economic decision-makers by mobilising public opinion in order to bring about lasting changes in policies and practices that help to eradicate world hunger.
The Research programme aims to improve the quality of our interventions through quantitative and qualitative studies so that we can get a better grasp on the causes of malnutrition in a particular region, optimise diagnosis of severe acute malnutrition and define new malnutrition treatment and prevention options.
In 2021, we led 55 research projects, which were covered by more than 100 research publications.
