Food & nutrition

Meeting basic nutritional needs can break the cycle of poverty.

We provide food security to families in vulnerable regions around the world. We educate communities about nutrition and sustainable food access to address hunger and malnutrition and their impact.

Why?

805M

People do not
have enough food
to eat

21%

of the population
in Africa face hunger daily

45%

 of deaths in children
under five are due
to poor nutrition

The vast majority of them live in developing regions, in the most vulnerable conditions. With resources becoming scarce, mass internal displacement, conflict, and instability are imminent consequences. In order to reduce poverty in the long run, we must create opportunities to enhance food security. We must promote smart food choices and ensure sustainable measures are taken for these vulnerable communities.
