Global Hunger Response
Extreme hunger. Conflict. Climate change. High inflation. Uneven global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. These are the deadly forces that many children and families across the world are facing.
While the wealthy world grapples with a cost-of-living crisis, the earth’s most vulnerable people are struggling with dire hunger, starvation, and the looming threat of famine.
Over 333 million people worldwide are facing acute levels of food insecurity and do not know where their next meal is coming from.
We face a race against time. According to the latest available data, today over 54.3 million people in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia and Myanmar are living in crisis, emergency, and catastrophic levels of acute food insecurity. Faced with a severe lack of food access, critical acute malnutrition, and destitution, they all require immediate action to stop them from sliding into emergencies or are one step away from famine and starving to death.
Your support to the Global Hunger Emergency Response will help save precious lives in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Ethiopia and Myanmar providing:
- Access to food (e.g. school lunches)
- Emergency health and nutrition services (i.e. nutrition screening and lifesaving medicines)
- Protection and resilience-building activities (i.e. seeds and agricultural inputs for kitchen gardens) etc.
