A protracted drought in Bolivia resulted in severe water scarcity and ruined staple crops across the country in 2010. Action Against Hunger, in coordination with local institutions, ensured an emergency water supply for 50 communities facing extreme shortages and helped 4,500 farming families whose harvests were destroyed through corn and seed distributions.
On June 1, 2010, tropical storm Agatha battered much of Central America, including Guatemala, where 250 people were killed or went missing and at least 125,000 others lost their homes, livelihoods, and small trades. Action Against Hunger mounted an emergency response for 50,000 people in the hard-hit area of Escuintla, where severe flooding contaminated drinking water and threatened food supplies for thousands of families.
300,000 displaced Haitians receive daily access to clean drinking water through ACF's ongoing recovery programs as a result of a devastating earthquake in early 2010.
