The Action Contre la Faim (ACF) International Network (ACF) is an international humanitarian organisation specialised in tackling hunger and malnutrition worldwide. ACF saves the lives of malnourished children and their families and works with vulnerable populations to preserve and restore their livelihoods with dignity. In situations of conflict, natural disaster and chronic food insecurity, ACF has pursued its vision of a world without hunger for nearly three decades. We work in over 40 countries worldwide to carry out innovative programmes in nutrition, food security, water and sanitation, health and advocacy helping more than 4.5 million people every year. All ACF members adhere to a charter of principles that form the foundation of our humanitarian commitment: independence, impartiality, nondiscrimination,
free and direct access to victims, professionalism and transparency. ACF works in partnership with local organisations in over 20 countries. Local partnerships are a key element in the fight against hunger and local organisations play a major role in addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations, in particular of people suffering from malnutrition and affected by food insecurity.
