A Global Threat

Despite living in a world of abundance, over 800 million people across the world still go to bed hungry.

Natural disasters, the lingering effects of COVID-19, and soaring food prices have compounded the effects of food insecurity. Not to mention, conflict which is by far the biggest driver of hunger.

The effects of hunger are adverse and often deadly. Without food, people’s lives come to a standstill. They are unable to support their families, falling deeper into poverty.

Our teams are on the ground in the world's hardest-hit regions like Somalia, Pakistan, and Yemen witnessing the heartbreaking reality. They are rescuing tens of thousands who are at the brink of starvation, providing food and essential supplies. Without these life saving necessities, death is inevitable.

From building bread factories in Yemen to providing food to people in emergency zones, we are there for the hungry and displaced.

We also provide free meals to students at the Muslim Hands Schools of Excellence, thereby tackling the hunger crisis in a sustainable way. By investing in children, we hope to produce self-sufficient adults who will be able to feed their families.

Despite being the one of the biggest threats to mankind, hunger is a solvable problem. Today, we have 300 million fewer hungry people compared to the 90s. And together, we can work towards eliminating hunger.
