Hunger & Nutrition

Nearly 1 billion children, women, and men in the world today are hungry. They are the victims of natural disasters and climate changes, the unemployed living in urban slums, the landless farmers tilling other people’s fields, the widows of war, and the orphans of AIDS.

For years, ADRA has implemented food security initiatives throughout Central and South America, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia. Our global ADRA team works with people of every age to show them new ways to produce food for their future— including sustainable agriculture practices and the use of new technologies, such as irrigation systems and greenhouses, how to access markets and increase trade, and protecting their environment through land management and reforestation.
