Founded in 1979 by a group of French intellectuals in response to the emergency in Afghanistan. These included Françoise Giroud, Bernard Henri Lévy, Marek Halter, Alfred Kastler (a Nobel Laureate in physics), Guy Sorman, Jacques Attali, and several other doctors, journalists and writers. While the fight against hunger had previously been an element of more general humanitarian action (the fight against poverty, promoting better health, etc.) they founded an organisation that was exclusively dedicated to ending hunger. Action against Hunger is now recognised as one of the leading organisations in the fight against hunger worldwide.

Our mission is to save lives and meet the basic needs of people in the hardest-to-reach areas. ACTED develops and implements programs for the most vulnerable populations who are victims of violence, conflict, natural disasters or endemic poverty. ACTED's approach goes beyond the emergency response, with a commitment to sustainable development and livelihoods of communities.
ACTED's mission is to support vulnerable populations around the world and support them in building a better future by providing a response tailored to specific needs. Our teams help people affected by crises through a global and local approach, multidisciplinary and adapted to each context. By acting as a link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development, ACTED's teams ensure that interventions in times of crisis are useful and sustainable, as only long-term support - staying on site after the emergency and involving communities - helps break the cycle of poverty and support people on the road to sustainable development.

Fighting poverty through entrepreneurship
At Agrisud, we do not accept the idea that today almost one billion and a half of individuals are living in poverty and are often experiencing great difficulties to feed themselves daily.
It is well known in the South as in the North that poverty is caused especially by economic exclusion, which gradually leads to social exclusion. We are now convinced that one way of resolving this situation is to help those people back into the economy. How? By helping them become entrepreneurs
Welthungerhilfe is one of the largest private aid organisations in Germany, independent of politics and religion. It was established in 1962, as the German section of the "Freedom from Hunger Campaign", one of the world's first initiatives aimed at the eradication of hunger.
What we do
We fight for the eradication of hunger and poverty. Our aim is to render our work unnecessary. We provide aid from a single source: From rapid disaster relief to long-term development cooperation projects. In 2015, we were able to support 7.3 million people with 387 overseas projects in 40 countries. Since its establishment, Welthungerhilfe has supported more than 8,120 overseas projects with around 3.03 billion Euro, 5,746 of which have been self-help projects (more facts and figures in the latest annual report).
How we work
Help to self-help is our guiding principle; together with local partner organisations we strengthen structures on a grassroots level and ensure a long-term success of our projects. Moreover, we inform the public and advise politics – nationally and internationally. We thus fight for change of the circumstances that lead to hunger and poverty.

Aid for Haiti is built on a foundation of prayer and is committed to changing lives in Haiti through Christ-centered spiritual ministry, medical care, and training to equip Haitians to serve their own communitiesAid for Haiti was birthed out of an invitation to treat a rare condition affecting a village in a remote region of Haiti, when a group of like minded doctors were stirred to pioneer an organization that would, through prayer, combine the gospel of Christ, medical care and training for service to see lives changed and individuals released from physical suffering and spiritual bondage. Through all we do, we seek to glorify Jesus Christ and express his love to the Haitian people. Please consider joining us in this mission.
