The State of Hunger in Pakistan

Pakistan has South Asia’s second largest economy, but inequality, poverty, conflict, and limited access to basic social services have limited its development. The country is vulnerable to frequent climate shocks, such as floods and droughts, leaving millions at risk of hunger and in need of humanitarian assistance. Pakistan also hosts millions of refugees from neighboring Afghanistan.

How We're Helping in Pakistan

Action Against Hunger works with local partners and government agencies to improve the country’s health system and capacity to treat and prevent malnutrition. We also support farmers, especially women, to grow crops and raise livestock in the face of climate change.
