Dedicated to ending world hunger and determined to become one of the front-runners in the fight against child hunger, GIVIDA Activewear has decided to expand its reach of aid beyond Uganda alone and towards a more global focus. With help from our partners at Action Against Hunger, we will provide treatment meals to children suffering from severe malnutrition around the world in areas needing the most attention at that time. From Uganda, to Guatemala, to the Congo Republic, Action Against Hunger will ensure that our meal donations make it into the hands of the children that need it most.
Just last week, the Malawian government issued an urgent call for help as a massive food crisis threatens 500,000 children in Malawi, Africa. Malawi is facing the worst food insecurity the nation has faced in a decade due to severe flooding, erratic rainfall, and drought in 2015. Nearly 3 million people including more than 500,000 children under the age of five are facing serious hunger and dangerous food shortages. Because of this, Action Against Hunger has launched a new emergency response program in Malawi to treat children with severe malnutrition and mitigate hunger.
Hunger is a global issue and regions around the world are facing economical and environmental threats that prompt the need for immediate aid, which is why we have decided to give our aid a more global focus to assist those who need it the most, when they need it the most.
Hunger expands beyond borders and now, so will our aid.
We’re extremely excited to expand our focus and get a chance to achieve our ultimate goal: ending world hunger.
