Action Against Hunger's mission is to save lives through the prevention, detection, and treatment of malnutrition, especially during and after emergency situations of conflict, war and natural disaster. From crisis to sustainability, we tackle the underlying causes of malnutrition and its effects by using our 30 years of expertise in nutrition, food security & livelihoods, and water, sanitation, & hygiene. By integrating our programs with local and national systems we further ensure that short-term interventions become long-term solutions.

Comprised of five independent, non-profit organizations with headquarters in London, New York, Madrid, Montréal, and Paris, Action Against Hunger saves the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger. ACF bridges emergency relief with longer-term interventions in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity. Our 4,600+ field staff—seasoned professionals and technical experts in nutrition, water and sanitation, public health, and food security—carry out life-saving programs in over 40 countries. These programs reach nearly five million people a year, restoring dignity, self-sufficiency, and independence to vulnerable populations around the world.
