Recognised as a leader in the fight against malnutrition, Action Against Hunger works to save the lives of malnourished children while working with communities to provide sustainable and long-term solutions to hunger.

Action Against Hunger is operating in Jordan since 2013, implementing Food Security & Livelihoods (FSL), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH), and Mental Health and Care Practices programmes with vulnerable Jordanian and Syrian communities.
