Action Against Hunger

Action Against Hunger-USA, established in 1985, is the US branch of part of Action Against Hunger (also known as Action Contre le Faim or ACF). ACF is an international, non-governmental, non-religious organization created in Paris in 1979, which works to save lives by combating hunger, malnutrition, physical suffering and the associated distress that endanger the lives of children, women, and men in emergency situations of war, conflict, and natural disaster. ACF is directly at work in more than 40 countries on five continents with teams of fieldworkers consisting of nearly 400 specialists in the fields of nutrition, agriculture, water and sanitation, and public health. ACF relies on the skills of its local teams of 6,000 people to develop programs that are well adapted to the needs of its beneficiaries. http://www.actionagainsthunger.org/
