Ending hunger means more than simply providing people with calories: It encompasses a global effort for healthy and secure nutrition. Welthungerhilfe is approaching its objective of Zero Hunger from multiple angles.
Securing survival is the absolute priority, whether in the face of man-made crises, natural disasters or chronic under- and malnutrition. At the same time, Welthungerhilfe also focuses especially on long-term food and nutrition security. The promotion of rural development and smallholders is largely based on access to land, seeds, clean water and sanitation facilities.
In addition, Welthungerhilfe is disseminating entrepreneurial know-how in rural regions and helping to establish small businesses and cooperatives. This creates prospects for the future and prevents people in many countries from having to flee.
