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 have always been very leery of donating to charity for fear that my dollars would not be used for their intended purposes. After doing a good deal of research into reputable charities I saw that Action Against Hunger was one of the top rated charities on every review site I could find. As a Christian I believe that I have a God given duty to try and help the less fortunate in whatever ways that I can and I feel good knowing that this small effort on my part can be used to help people far, far less fortunate then myself. If you are considering donating to a worthy charity that will use your gift to the greatest good I don't think you can do better then Action Against Hunger. Please consider giving.

ACF is a very efficient organization helping millions of people around the world and especially children! Their teams are wonderful and very dedicated to helping fight hunger. It is important to me to give to an organization dedicated to children. It is also important for me to be sure that what I give is really going to the people in need. With ACF I have absolutely no doubt about this!
