Action Against Hunger was founded with a simple goal in mind: No more hungry children in India.
Action Against Hunger was set up in August 2012 with the purpose of eradicating malnutrition and protecting our country’s children from hunger. It is an Indian not-for-profit, non-political and non-religious organization registered under Section 25 of the Companies Act, 1956 in Mumbai.
We fight hunger and malnutrition in 46 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
Our life-saving programmes reached 17 million people around the world in 2020.
Out of every £1 raised, 91p goes directly towards our charitable activities.

On the list of the world’s top 10 health risks, hunger continues to occupy the first position. One out of eight people go to sleep hungry every night despite living in a world where there is enough food to feed all of us. Hunger, or undernutrition, is a result of insufficient intake of macro and micro nutrients. It can, and often does, lead to chronic malnutrition or severe wasting associated with acute malnutrition.
Over one million children under the age of five die due to malnutrition-related causes in India every year.
