Alex Cottinon 25 March 2015
Transcript of Action Against Hunger 2015 Program Overview
is dedicated to saving the lives of severely malnourished children while helping vulnerable families and communities become self-sufficient.
No access to water
MALNUTRITION CLAIMS THE
Action Against Hunger
Lack of access to safe water and sanitation
Action Against Hunger is working with families, communities and local agencies to prevent malnutrition in India
India has the most malnourished children of any country because:
Parents have to work long hours
Children lack proper health care
WATER, SANITATION, HYGIENE
In South Sudan, waterborne diseases like cholera
Can lead to or worsen malnutrition
Kill thousands of children every day
Are caused by dirty water & unhygienic living conditions
the influx of refugees from Mali
Families in Burkina Faso struggle to make ends meet in the face of:
a weak economy
rapidly expanding population
frequent cholera outbreaks
aftermath of the 2011 food crisis in the Sahel region
Will take up to 10 years to fully recover from
Typhoon Haiyan, the most devastating storm ever to hit the Philippines
Left 14 million people in need of aid
Left 4 million people displaced
Destroyed land, infrastructure and livelihoods
Assisting populations in distress
Diagnosing, treating and preventing malnutrition
Ouaba Pouguidiba is the community garden President. She says, "Our children are stronger and happier... Malnutrition is gone from our community thanks to Action Against Hunger."
WE FIGHT HUNGER
WE ARE CREATING A WORLD WITHOUT HUNGER
IN 45 COUNTRIES
THROUGH 4 MAIN PROGRAM AREAS
emergencies responded to in 3 years
people regained economic self-sufficiency
people treated for malnutrition and illness
people accessed safe water and sanitation
people reached worldwide
We treated Prahlad and he is now on
the road to recovery
His mom Rehka sought help at an Action Against Hunger-supported health center
At 2 years old,
he weighed less
than 10 pounds
After Typhoon Haiyan hit in November 2013, we delivered aid to 650,000 people, including those living in coastal villages, remote islands, and isolated mountainous areas
We provided emergency food rations and screened children for malnutrition
To prevent waterborne diseases, we distributed hygiene kits, built latrines, and rebuilt sanitation infrastructure.
We’re now helping people like Luz (shown here) who lost their livelihoods regain their self-sufficiency.
Our teams mobilized after a cholera epidemic hit Juba in May 2014
We disinfected houses, improved water sources,
and held cholera
PUR, which disinfects water, and demonstrated
how to use it
We're still working with local authorities to improve people's access to water
In a village in rural Burkina Faso, many children were malnourished because their diets were poor
We gave them the seeds, tools and training they needed to grow diverse, healthy crops
Now the garden is thriving, producing carrots, lettuce, onions, tomatoes
We helped local women establish and maintain a community garden
