End hunger & malnutrition
Chronic malnutrition threatens the health and development of a third of the world’s population — especially pregnant women and children. When you donate to effective hunger charities, you’re helping the world survive and thrive.
Chronic malnutrition comes from deficiencies in iodine, folic acid, vitamin A, and other micronutrients that people in affluent countries typically consume in their normal diets.
These devastating consequences are all preventable with simple, cost-effective interventions like food fortification.
In fact, the World Bank says “probably no other technology available today offers as large an opportunity to improve lives and accelerate development at such low cost and in such a short time” as micronutrient fortification.
Our recommended hunger charities combat inequalities in food supply and distribution, and the underlying structures that lead to inadequate nutrition. These organizations’ innovative and research-backed initiatives bring improved crops, nourishing meals, and vital nutrients to millions of the world’s neediest families.
