Action Against Hunger is an international network (Paris, New York, London, Toronto, Madrid and New Delhi) committed to ending world hunger. For almost 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, we have been working to fight undernutrition and support communities affected by crisis across the globe. In 2017, we reached more than 20 million people worldwide. We carry out innovative, lifesaving and development programmes in nutrition and health (including mental health), WASH, disaster risk reduction and management, food security and livelihood, and advocacy
Action Against Hunger has been working in Sierra Leone since 1991 with the purpose to respond to the needs of the most vulnerable people, at first during the emergencies and then in a more development setting, until the 2014 Ebola outbreak and the emergency it generated in the country. AAH interventions in Sierra Leone aim at improving the nutrition security of the population, with particular focus on children under-five and pregnant and lactating women. AAH aims at doing so by implementing multisectorial programs, which encompass direct nutrition intervention and prevention activities to address the underlining causes of undernutrition, i.e. poor health, food insecurity, poor care practices, and poor access to water and sanitation. Action Against Hunger has also an integrated advocacy strategy in the mission that cut across all the sectors.
