Mission:

Action Against Hunger | ACF International works to save the lives of malnourished children and adults while seeking long-term solutions to hunger through self-sustaining programs. ACF works around the world to carry out innovative, lifesaving programs in nutrition, food security and livelihoods, and water, sanitation and hygiene that restore dignity, self-sufficiency, and independence to vulnerable populations around the world.

Target demographics:

those suffering from malnutrition, with a focus on the most vulnerable, including young children and women who are pregnant or nursing.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

13+ million people

Geographic areas served:

over 46 countries around the world

Programs:

Nutrition: Global hunger now afflicts more than a billion people worldwide. Severe acute malnutrition, however, is the more immediate killer: it threatens the lives of 19 million children. Every year as many as 5 million of them die from malnutrition-related causes. From rural mountain villages to the confines of refugee camps to ethnically divided cities, Action Against Hunger treats and prevents malnutrition in over 40 countries around the world. Our programs are launched most often during times of crisis and focus on the most vulnerable, including young children and women who are pregnant or nursing. Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene: Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. A third of the world’s population lives without basic sanitation infrastructure like a toilet. Every day 4,000 children die from illnesses like diarrhea, dysentery, and cholera caused by dirty water and unhygienic living conditions. We can’t fight malnutrition without tackling the diseases that contribute to it. As part of our integrated approach to hunger, we’re getting safe water, sanitation, and hygiene services to communities in need all over the world. Food Security & Livelihoods: Action Against Hunger’s food security & livelihoods programs tackle the root causes of hunger: problems of access, income, and production. Our food security & livelihoods activities aim to prevent outbreaks of life-threatening acute malnutrition by helping some of the most vulnerable communities around the world regain nutritional self-sufficiency. While our programs encompass a wide array of activities, all are customized to meet the specific needs of each community. Emergency Response: From cholera epidemics sweeping through refugee camps, to catastrophic natural disasters, to malnutrition crises brought on by drought, Action Against Hunger responds to humanitarian emergencies all over the world, delivering immediate life-saving services to populations in distress. With emergency teams on call 24 hours a day, and pre-positioned stocks of essential supplies ready for deployment, our internationally renowned rapid response capabilities ensure that life-saving assistance can be deployed anywhere in the world when needs arise.

Reviews for Action Against Hunger | Acf-Usa

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently became a donor after I had a chance to personally ask all the questions I had about how they are fighting hunger. I was impressed that they dont only hand out food, but also tackle all the causes that lead to emergency treatment. I know that with my donation, I am making an impact and saving lives.

I have been an Action Against Hunger donor for sometime now. I have always felt comfortable donating through AAH. Born and raised in Bangladesh, I know the devastating effect of hunger, malnutrition and abject poverty. I am not a wealthy man, but I try to give to the best of my ability, for I know even a little amount can go a long way to alleviate suffering among an impoverished population.

Thank you so much for this excellent review! We really appreciate your kind words.

Rating: 5 stars  

I believe this organization goes the farthest with the money donated. I would say any nonprofit group is a great choice, I chose Action Against Hunger becuase they cover the most countries in the world. The way I see it is that the more ground we can cover, the closer we come to ending world hunger.

May God bless you!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

ADVERTISE MORE! You guys need to get the world out about how great this organization is!

I believe in my heart that no child or family should ever have to go a day without eating. If the world could just come together to help a brother or sister, mother or father, we might find a satisfying peace within ourselves and within the lives of others that we have helped. It is our duty to step up and lend our hands to those in need. "Why ?" we might ask ? The answer is simple. Karma. And may she be as kind to us as our we have given to others. This is my Dream for the World.

True to its name, AAH takes action. What impresses me most about the organization is how action is informed by the needs and capacity of the local population AND by the evaluation it conducts in the field of what has and hasn't worked, and why. It applies what it has learned to the design and implementation of each project. That, I think, sets them apart.

I represent www.PerfectSupplements.com, a small family business that is proud to partner with Action Against Hunger. They are really making a difference in reducing world hunger and they do it with fiscal responsibility.

Thanks so much for this great review! We're so happy to have you on board as a partner.

Rating: 4 stars  

I am reserving my final review until I find out if Action Against Hunger is going to send me incessant reminders about giving. I donate very carefully and do so once or maybe twice a year (Christmas as well as my philanthropic-minded daughter's birthday). Nothing you send me or tell me will make me donate more than twice a year. Please do not waste precious resources on glossy catalogs or shiny mailers trying to get me to give. Save that money for the hungry people around the world you help and I'll be happy to give next Christmas. Believe me, my daughter will remind me so you won't have to!

Hi there! Thanks so much for the review, and we'll be sure not to mail you more than once or twice a year. Thanks for letting us know your preference - can you email me your full name and address at socialmedia@actionagainsthunger.org so I can make sure we respect your wishes?

Rating: 5 stars  

I am familiar with a wide range of nonprofits, and work for one myself. Action Against Hunger is by far the best choice for my donations, due to both the critical mission it performs and to the high efficiency of its fundraising and other administrative operations. Congratulations to Nan Dale for making AAH such a valuable resource for the world's hungry.

I like AAH, and I contribute every month, but I hope that their costs could be lower.
