ACF Pakistan: Intégration de la nutrition dans le programme de réponse aux inondations

Pakistan experienced some of the worst floods in its history in 2010, affecting more than one-tenth of Pakistan's population.

As a result of these high numbers, nearly thirty-five percent of young child deaths nationally are related to malnutrition.

Disability is Not Inability: Stories of Success, Despite Physical Limitations

At Action Against Hunger, we help people who face extreme hardships every day to survive. Many lack access to basic necessities like food and water; others are struggling to rebuild after a disaster.
