Action Against Hunger in Afghanistan
Action Against Hunger / Action Contre la Faim (ACF) was founded in 1979 in response to the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan. In 1995, ACF launched its first relief operations within the country, starting in Kabul and Pansheer; it has continued to be one of the leading humanitarian aid organizations in Afghanistan to the present day.
