Hunger is not just that rumble and displeasure you feel in your stomach when you go without a meal for too long. For Global Hunger Foundation®, hunger is chronic malnourishment. Although hunger can affect any country, we focus specifically on developing countries because hunger can have a disproportionate effect when combined with other problems these countries face such as disease, corruption, and state violence, which particularly affect vulnerable populations such as women and children.

Much progress has been made over the last few decades combating the ravaging effects of hunger, especially in many Latin American and Central Asian countries. But 795 million people are still chronically malnourished.
By donating to Global Hunger Foundation®, you are making an investment in not just a hungry person’s future, but the future of the planet.
