Food For The Hungry is a Christian organisation engaged in sustainable development work in some of the poorest regions of the world.
It believes that communities themselves can overcome the poverty in which they live, working together with community churches, leaders and families to find sustainable solutions. It helps some of the poorest communities in Africa, Asia and South America.
Food for The Hungry’s primary emphasis is on the long term development of the extremely poor, recognizing their creativity and ability to resolve their own problems. To that end, over 95% of staff in the field are recruited locally.
Today, Food for the Hungry UK supports six programs through which it enacts a combination of:
Food and agriculture
Water and sanitation
Income generation skills
Empowering local people
