Global Malnutrition Crisis

Global conflict, related price rises and the impact of climate change are sending shockwaves through the food system. The world is sleepwalking into a food and malnutrition crisis. 50 million people are on the edge of famine already and this number is growing.

Donate now and your vital contribution will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact and saving lives.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent global cost-of-living crisis is having a devastating impact. In countries across Africa, 92% of all grain comes from Ukraine and Russia and much of that isn’t arriving.  Climate change has caused four back-to-back failed harvests which makes the soaring inflation rates hit even harder. It’s not just a pinch, millions of children are now at risk of dying from hunger and malnutrition.

Children across the Horn of Africa are on the edge of one of the worst famines in 40 years. 1.7 million face severe acute malnutrition (SAM), where they’re so ill they can’t even eat the food they so vitally need.

Ambitious action is needed now, to save millions of lives.

We’re raising vital funds to help support the most vulnerable women and children quickly and effectively. We’ll match all donations, dollar-for-dollar and the money raised will go to our existing programmes across Africa and Asia.

Our range of interventions means we can tackle both prevention and cure. Small cash transfers for example, helps families buy enough nutritious food to live – just $53 a month could prevent a family from going hungry. $5 a month would pay for the provision of a daily nutrient-rich food paste, to help prevent a child from becoming severely malnourished. $100 a month would provide ready-to-use-therapeutic food (RUTF) – a lifesaving mix of milk and peanuts for a child on the edge of death and suffering from severe malnutrition.

Each day that goes by, more and more children die. Act now to save lives. Donate now.
