For many Filipinos, access to food is a daily challenge.
All over the world, about 20 million more people are facing crisis levels of hunger as compared to previous years. Issues like conflicts, natural disasters, and COVID-19 contribute to this alarming increase. We all have a role to play to change this.

In fact, even before the pandemic, those residing in congested dwellings in informal settlements, transitory sites, and evacuation areas were already facing problems with inadequate water, poor sanitation and waste management, and limited access to health care facilities.

Undernourished people, especially young children, who contract COVID-19 could be at greater risk. To counter this, we need to support health facilities in their fight against the pandemic. In addition to this, we are working hard in maintaining the continuity of our maternal and child health programs.
You can help us strengthen and expand our activities focused on child malnutrition, support for women and psychosocial support.

In 2019, our programs on nutrition & health have reached more than 8.8 million people in need all over the world.
In the Philippines, we specifically work in isolated rural areas, urban poor communities, and evacuation camps – alleviating hunger and malnutrition by tackling its root cause.

Clean and potable water is not always easy to come by for communities affected by emergency situations like conflicts or natural disasters, especially those living in evacuation centers. This is why one of our initiatives is to ensure that the communities we work with have access to safe water for drinking and cleaning.
Now that we are a year into the COVID pandemic, the need for a reliable water and hygiene facilities are all the more crucial.
With your help, we can reach more communities and give them access to these needed facilities. 𝗙𝗼𝗿 𝗰𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻 𝘄𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗿, 𝗮𝗴𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘁 𝗸𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿 𝗱𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲𝘀.

As the world’s leading hunger specialist, we prioritize vulnerable families and individuals who are more at risk to not only hunger and malnutrition, but are also susceptible to it’s causes—such as poverty, diseases, disasters or even conflicts. For example, most of our beneficiaries for cash-based interventions are identified through nutrition-focused targeting; like Sittie Palao –one of the beneficiaries for our Marawi Crisis response four years ago.
#ThrowbackThursday: 𝗦𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗶𝗲 𝗔𝗶𝗻𝗮 𝗣𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗼 is a mother of 3 from the Municipality of Buadiposo Buntong, Lanao del Sur which back in December 2017 was greatly affected by #TyphoonTembin. Their municipality is also host to internally displaced persons from the #MarawiSiege.
At the time, Sittie and her husband’s source of income was halted due to the impacts of the typhoon. To make matters more challenging for them, Sittie and two of her children were suffering from malnutrition.
Because of this, Action Against Hunger supported Sittie’s family in restoring their livelihoods through our cash transfer program. On February 2019, Sittie received cash assistance amounting to 7,000 pesos, in addition to 3 rounds of food aid. They were also referred to the regional health unit for treatment using the Ready-to-use Therapeutic and Supplementary Food (RUTF and RUSF).
A month after, Sittie shared that with the food aid given, she is now able to prepare quality meals for her family and that unlike before they no longer eat just once a day.
Through these types of interventions, we hope to empower more women like to take control of their health and nutrition, at the same time enabling them to provide for themselves and their families.

Our presence in Mindanao go way back to our first humanitarian response in the Philippines during the year 2000. Two decades later, we continue to work with Mindanao communities, providing life-saving aid to the most vulnerable people in need. Specifically, we have scaled up our water, sanitation & hygiene interventions this year to help mitigate the risks of COVID-19.
We are continuously distributing and replenishing hygiene kits, and conducting hygiene promotion & risk awareness sessions throughout conflict and earthquake-affected areas within Lanao del Sur and North Cotabato. Additionally, we have been installing and maintaining touch-free handwashing stations in public places and health units.

In The Invisible Monster film, we see how parents like Aminodin’s mother strive to make ends meet in order to provide food for the children. She and her family, like everyone else, have the right to adequate food as this is a fundamental human right and not a privilege.
This is why we constantly combat food insecurity and malnutrition in the communities where we work. We provide nutrition sensitization programs, livelihood cash assistance and trainings among many others. With your support, we can help more families fight hunger.
