Mobilise and influence
Faced with the accelerating trend in global warming, natural disasters are more frequent and more intense.
We are developing research programmes in response to the problem of hunger in the world.
Vulnerable people have to survive conflicts, hygiene and malnutrition-related diseases, extreme metrological events as well as family imbalance. Communities are exposed to a great deal of violence, insecurity and anxiety that has a huge impact on the mental health of individuals: depression, post-trauma stress, sleeping disorders and behavioural problems, people can suffer great distress.
In 2022, our Mental Health and Psychosocial Support activities supported almost 969,000 people.
We are taking action and providing psychosocial support to protect people and to improve infant-care practices. Action Against Hunger considers that there are multiple causes for malnutrition and physiological dysfunction and the quality of the care given to pregnant women and to young infants being part of them. Within the scope of malnutrition and Mental Health and Health Care (MHHC) teams have a role to play. Psychosocial and parenting operational programmes are long-lasting in the fight against hunger and minimise the impact of difficult circumstances that affect these people.
Support groups have been setup in different health centres and individual support has been put in place for the more vulnerable. In certain cases, relaxation sessions are necessary to reduce anxiety and fear.
For children, group and parent-children activities to reinforce family links, educational games and motor skills development sessions have been implemented so that they can grow up and develop in the most serenely way possible.
