Hunger is the world's biggest health problem. 25,000 people a day die from hunger, and this is set to rise.

When the poorest people beat hunger, they gain the strength to build a future out of poverty. Each year we reach millions of people with sustainable solutions to hunger, like the opportunity to grow their own food.

In 2020, due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the number of people who went to bed hungry increased by 130 million. We need to act now.

Will you help us reach more people with long-term solutions to hunger?

Help families stay healthy with long-term solutions to hunger

Offering people like Sori the tools and training to plant a small kitchen garden is a life-saving and sustainable solution to hunger that can bring so many benefits:

  • Easy access to vegetables and fruit enable families to eat more nutritious meals and become stronger and healthier.
  • Surplus crops, or meals made from a kitchen garden, can be sold as a source of income and the profits saved to spend on improving a family's situation.
  • With families well-fed and starting to earn money, they can take advantage of more opportunities to earn a sustainable income and build a future out of poverty.
