Pakistan

Pakistan has experienced a steady rise in destabilizing socio-political, economic, and environmental forces over the past decade that have torn at the very fabric of this fragile nation. Behind these seismic geopolitical forces lies a backdrop of chronic and acute undernutrition, widespread food insecurity, and recurring natural disasters that routinely displace millions of people, destroy homes and vital infrastructure, and disrupt countless lives and livelihoods.

Kenya

Kenya has one of the largest economies in East and Central Africa, and a strong agricultural sector. However, the unequal distribution of wealth has left half of the country’s population living below the poverty line. Struggling Kenyans face daunting health challenges such as malnutrition, malaria, and waterborne diseases—all preventable illnesses that the nation’s public health system is ill-equipped to handle. To assist these vulnerable populations, Action Against Hunger has been implementing programs in nutrition, food security, and water, sanitation, and hygiene in Kenya since 2002.

Haiti

Years of political instability and recurring natural disasters have kept Haiti in an impoverished tailspin, placing one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after another in their path to development, with some 55% of the Haitian population currently living below the poverty line.

Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the largest countries in Africa, with a population of 65 million people and the second largest land mass on the continent. Suffering decades of conflict, regional war, and political neglect, the scale of humanitarian needs in the D.R. Congo becomes clear when you understand that nearly 30% of all children under five suffer from undernutrition. Without treatment, many of these children will succumb to the deadly effects of hunger.
