Welthungerhilfe is dedicated to fighting for a world without hunger. In close collaboration with local partners, we enable people to break out of hunger and poverty sustainably, with measurable impact, and with integrity and accountability. In 2020 alone, Welthungerhilfe and our local partners supported more than 14.3 million people – men, women, and children – through 539 projects in 35 countries around the globe.
Welthungerhilfe pursues a dual mandate to ensure our actions meet the needs of our target groups: providing programmes for short-term disaster relief as well as long-term development. To achieve sustainable food and nutrition security among the most vulnerable, these programmes link our key focus areas interrelated with hunger – agriculture and environment; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); economic development; humanitarian assistance; climate change; and civil society and advocacy. Innovation helps to scale the impact.
