Food for the Hungry (FH) is a Christian humanitarian organization ending all forms of human poverty by providing life-changing development programs, disaster relief, and advocacy. Since 1971, FH has been going into the world’s hardest places with an exit strategy: to respond to human suffering and graduate communities from extreme poverty into thriving, self-sustainable places to live. By creating context-specific solutions in education, agriculture, health, livelihood, clean water, and disaster risk reduction, the nonprofit focuses on transformational development, investing in children as the key to lift entire communities out of poverty. With 98% of staff working in their country of origin, FH works side-by-side with local leaders, churches, and families to implement innovative solutions. The organization currently serves more than 12.7 million people in over 20 countries worldwide. For more information, follow @food4thehungry or visit www.fh.org.

In over thirty years of traveling around the world and learning about solutions to end poverty, the question that seems to be the most important one to ask is this: are these solutions sustainable?
Sustainable Change Leads to Lasting Impact
PHOENIX, Ariz. (November 19, 2018) – Two humanitarian aid workers from Food for the Hungry (FH) were tragically killed in Tanganyika province, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), on Thursday, November 15.
“We are devastated to confirm the tragic loss of our two staff members,” said FH CEO Mike Meyers. “Our hearts and prayers are with their families as we grieve alongside them.”
One of the biggest biometric verification processes ever undertaken has confirmed that Uganda is hosting 1.1 million refugees, by far the largest number in Africa and the third largest worldwide. With the scale of the crisis now confirmed, the international community should ensure the response is appropriately funded. As the end of the year approaches, the 2018 response plan has received just 42% of the required funds.
