Action Against Hunger’s mission is 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’s involvement typically begins with emergency relief in response to a crisis, but relief is always reinforced by longer term programs enabling victims to regain their autonomy and the means to live independent of external aid. In carrying out our activities, all members of ACF’s International Network adhere to a charter of principles that forms the foundation of our humanitarian commitment: independence, impartiality, nondiscrimination, free and direct access to victims, professionalism, and transparency.
