Action Against Hunger is a 40 year old charity, spanning across 47 countries, focusing their efforts towards helping malnourished children. Their work falls under SDG 2 Zero Hunger and it is inspiring that they have been working towards achieving this goal way long before the actual SDG (or even MDG) was defined, or even thought of!

Over 260,000 children have received life-saving nutrition with over £11 million raised by the action orientated NGO over the past 10 years! Raising this type of money is no easy feat, by any measure, and expectedly, Action Against Hunger have employed some innovative ideas. One such idea was their Love Food campaign, which simply empowered customers to donate £1 from their bill towards the cause and with over 400 restaurants involved there’s no doubt this worked like a charm. One of their upcoming events, in Spring 2020, will be a 100km trek in Jordan, with the aim to raise funds, but just as importantly, to raise awareness of the “growing hunger crisis that has gone largely unnoticed in the world’s media” (Reference – Linked article).

Massive thanks to ActionAgainstHunger for their passionate and resilient drive to achieve what seems to be against all odds!
