COVID-19 has impacted us all. Between stay-at-home orders, social distancing, and increasing cases of the virus in our communities we’re all feeling the burden of this global pandemic, but the threats of COVID-19 extend far past our global lockdown. Due to this pandemic, there is a risk that global food shortages will nearly double the number of people on the brink of starvation to an estimated 265 million people. We’ve partnered with Action Against Hunger to support their efforts to fight this threat by leading programs to end world hunger and provide health support to at-risk areas around the world.
What is Action Against Hunger?
“Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger.” The organization focuses on providing clean water, food, training, and healthcare globally. Action Against Hunger has been committed to ending world hunger for nearly 40 years, helping 21 million people across 47 countries last year alone. In some hard-to-reach places, they’re the only organization providing healthcare and need support to expand their water, sanitation, hygiene, and health programs. We specifically chose to partner with Action Against Hunger because they prioritize donations to go directly to their relief programs. $.93 of every dollar goes to programs, so you can be confident your donation is supporting those who need it the most.
We’ve joined Team45 to raise money for at-risk children. Every $45 donated supports a vulnerable child in need of lifesaving treatment. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to contribute to Team45’s larger goal of $250,000. If you’re able to, please consider donating to support Action Against Hunger. They need assistance more than ever to support areas with fewer resources during the pandemic. Together we can fight the threats of COVID-19!
