Each year, around 1 million children under five years old die from severe acute malnutrition, a disease that is predictable, preventable, treatable and affordable to cure. And every year, Action Against Hunger (AAH) saves hundred of thousands of young lives from malnutrition through several lifesaving programs.
It’s for their amazing work that we’re donating $1,000 for every 2 million Hearts donated toward Action Against Hunger from now until November 25 at 11:59pm PST.
Thanks to their innovative programs, AAH has reached more than 13 million people in over 45 countries, restoring self-sufficiency to vulnerable populations throughout the world.
Action Against Hunger Programs
Nutrition and Health
Evaluate, Treat, Prevent
The nutrition programs save the lives of severely malnourished children through emergency interventions and long-term preventative measures. Action Against Hunger identifies those diagnosed with malnutrition, treats them through inpatient care and community-based programs, and helps communities prevent malnutrition outbreaks.
Food Security and Livelihoods
Evaluate, Respond, Empower
Aimed at preventing future outbreaks by providing vulnerable communities with long-term solutions to hunger, AAH determines what is causing hunger in an area and supplies people with the tools, capital and training for income-generating activities.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
Provide, Promote, Ensure
Aimed at providing communities safe water services, AAH works to provide access to safe water, promote healthy habits and train community water committees to ensure long-term success of water infrastructures.
Evaluate, Respond, Reduce
When humanitarian emergencies happen, AAH determines what programs are needed, responds immediately with local partners and NGOs and works to predict disasters to prevent further damage to vulnerable communities.
