Action against Hunger was founded in 1979 by a group of French intellectuals in response to the emergency in Afghanistan.
ACF’s mission consists of saving lives via the prevention, detection and treatment of malnutrition, in particular during and following disasters and conflicts.
In all of its activities, ACF abides by the following principles set out in its charter.
The legitimacy of an action inevitably rests on the care taken to operate it with clarity and rigour, particularly the financial side.
In order better to respond to people’s needs, Action contre la Faim has developed an international network.
