What is the issue / cause that your charity supports?

The cause and issue our charity supports is world hunger. Our charity is called “Action Against Hunger,” or ACF-International for short. ACF is trying to solve/ address is world hunger. World hunger is worldwide, it is in 45 different countries and continents such as Africa, North and South America, Asia and the Middle East. World hunger is affecting children and adults, and mostly malnourished people. “Unfair trade is a significant reason for the desperate poverty and hunger of the people in Africa.” (Senker 11)


This problem is affecting our world because if it keeps escalating the world's populations could go down. This problem is also affecting our world because “people resort to baking mud pies and making cookies made of dried yellow dirt salt and vegetable shortening.”(Langley7) This food is what people are resorting to. “Lack of food means that people are malnourished. They are probably weak and likely to become sick. This means they are unable to work, go to school, learn skills or care for eachother.”(Langley13) The outcome of world hunger if it is not addressed is that people who are starving of hunger will just die without our help and hunger won’t stop. It will keep going and the world’s population would just decrease unless people like ACF does something about it. ACF is doing everything they can to address this problem and fix it.

How did the organization begin and grow into what it is now?

Action against hunger has dedicated to saving the lives of severely malnourished children while helping vulnerable families and communities become self sufficient.”It began in France in 1974 by a group of French doctors,scientist and writers”(wikipedia.org).Sadly every min 12 in Africa die from malnutrition. “They have more than 35 years of experience in emergency situations of conflict, natural disaster, and chronic food insecurity, ACF runs life saving programs in over 45 countries” (ActionAgainstHunger.org)“ACF has won 8 awards throw out there years of carrier.” (ActionAgainstHunger.org).


They have saved many lives in many different countries and continents. “Conflict in South Sudan since December 2013, has killed tens of thousands of people and forced nearly 1.5 million people to leave their homes because the have no monkey to live from.”(ActionAgainstHunger.org) Many people can't work because of their malnutrition so that means that they don't receive money and then they don’t have money to have a house and then they have to live there house.
