Our Response

As global cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, Action Against Hunger is working round the clock to mitigate the spread and impact of the virus worldwide. Thankfully, our teams are well-equipped to deliver in rapidly changing environments, and our experience working in previous epidemic contexts – including cholera in Haiti 2010, and Ebola in West Africa 2014 – is proving invaluable in our response to the current pandemic.

Use this space to explore our response and find out how we are adapting our programmes, operations and strategies to protect the most vulnerable in these times of crisis and uncertainty.
