Water, a major challenge
Nutrition and health above all is at the heart of our mission.
Food security and livelihoods for all.
We provide psychological support to the most vulnerable
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.
NEARLY 800 MILLION PEOPLE WERE FACING CHRONIC FOOD INSECURITY IN 2016. 159 MILLION INFANTS LESS THAN FIVE YEARS OF AGE WERE TREATED FOR SEVERE MALNUTRITION, 50 MILLION FOR ACUTE MALNUTRITION. HALF OF THE WORLD POPULATION SUFFER MALNUTRITION. THE CLIMATIC CHANGE IS AN ADDITIONAL THREAT TO THE FOOD SECURITY OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MOST VULNERABLE. DROUGHTS, FLOODS, EXTREME METROLOGIC EVENTS HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITIES.
Through its nutrition and health programmes, Action Against Hunger prevents, diagnoses and treats acute malnutrition of those at most risk: young infants, pregnant or breast-feeding women. Depending on the particular requirements of each situation, the context and the local culture, Action Against Hunger designs health and nutrition programmes that are tailor-made for the target community.
Action Against Hunger pays special attention to the training of local workers so that they can manage and treat malnutrition on a National level. Furthermore, AAH also takes into account the quality and nature of the care given to children in the family and the community. With this in mind, our programmes reinforce childcare practices and the parent-child relationship promoting the child’s physical and psychological development.
Our Healthcare Centres have been setup locally as close as possible to the people in need so that they are able to manage and treat malnutrition as quickly as possible. In parallel, emotional support (related to mental health) can be given to victims and their family.
