Just recently, RFG sent another donation to our charity partner, Action Against Hunger, valuing a total of $30,000. We firstly want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our partners for making this possible! While under these devastating circumstances, we hope that this has made your day a little bit brighter to know that together we are doing our bit to limit the impact of this global pandemic, and supporting Action Against Hunger’s on-going mission to end world hunger.
How is Action Against Hunger helping to limit the spread and challenges of COVID-19?
WASH PROGRAMMES: Action Against Hunger’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programme helped to reach a total of 8.9 million in 2019. To help limit the impact of COVID-19, Action Against Hunger will expand their programme, with the aim to teach hand washing and other hygiene practices that are crucial for preventing the further spread of the virus.
SUPPORT: To overcome the challenges that we’re facing on a global scale, a collaborative effort is essential. Action Against Hunger’s dedicated team across their countries of focus will continue to work with local health ministries to help identify and refer infected individuals, and to strengthen local health systems.
FIGHTING MALNUTRITION: At the core of Action Against Hunger’s mission, battling world hunger has never been of more importance. With undernutrition resulting in a weakened immune system this becomes a huge risk in the fight against COVID-19, and so their efforts will continue to acute malnutrition around the world.
