Action Against Hunger
THROUGH 4 MAIN PROGRAM AREAS
Lack of access to safe water and sanitation
NUTRITION
His mom Rehka sought help at an Action Against Hunger-supported health center
At 2 years old,
he weighed less
than 10 pounds
Meet Prahlad
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
We treated Prahlad and he is now on
the road to recovery
WASH
WATER, SANITATION, HYGIENE
Waterborne diseases like cholera
Our teams mobilized after
a cholera epidemic hit Juba,
South Sudan in May 2014
We disinfected houses, improved water sources, and held
cholera awareness sessions
We distributed PUR, which disinfects water, and demonstrated how to use it
Can lead to or worsen malnutrition
Kill 4,000 children every day
Are caused by dirty water & unhygienic living conditions
We’re also working with local authorities to ensure progress
We’re still working in Juba working to improve people’s access to water

WASH
FOOD SECURITY
EMERGENCY RESPONSE
the influx of refugees from Mali
FOOD SECURITY
AND LIVELIHOODS
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
We gave them the seeds, tools, and training they needed to grow diverse, healthy crops
She tells us: “Our children are stronger and
happier. They get over illnesses faster and
they grow faster. Malnutrition is gone in our
community thanks to Action Against Hunger.”
In a village in rural Burkina Faso, many children were malnourished because their diets were poor
We helped local women establish
and maintain a community garden
Now, the garden is thriving, producing
carrots, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and more.
The garden is led by local women. Ouaba Pouguidiba (shown here) is the president
EMERGENCY RESPONSE
Will take up to 10 years to fully recover from
Typhoon Haiyan, the most devastating storm ever to hit landfall
Left 14 million people in need of aid
Left 4 million people displaced
Destroyed land, infrastructure and livelihoods
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.
In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines
