What kind of world do we want him to wake up to? To start: one where he isn't hungry, has clean water, and lives in a food secure community. #WednesdayWisdom

At Action Against Hunger, we're big on research, evaluation, and monitoring. We strive to make our programs the best they can be, and that means continuously working to improve. Get an inside look at how our team in Sindh Province, Pakistan, is conducting a study to see if adding a water, sanitation, and health component to one of our Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) programs will make it more effective: http://bit.ly/2b6aCw2

Ten years since the Muttur massacre, and we will not give up. We still feel the pain of loss when 17 dedicated team members were assassinated in Sri Lanka on August 6th, 2006 while they were working tirelessly to save lives. The crime remains unpunished.

We need to strengthen the protection of humanitarian workers and fight against impunity for these crimes, which in turn threaten access to populations in need of assistance.

Please show your support by telling us your thoughts in the comments and by sharing this post. Thank you to all of our dedicated supporters during this difficult anniversary.

Breastfeeding can make a huge difference in a baby's health -- but did you also know that it is a powerful tool for sustainable development? It's World Breastfeeding Week ‪#‎WBW2016‬, and this year's theme is all about how increasing breastfeeding rates and successes can have an impact on whole communities and countries. Learn more about this important connection, and how Action Against Hunger incorporates breastfeeding promotion and education into our programming around the world: http://www.actionagainsthunger.org/blog/world-breastfeeding-week-powerful-force-sustainable-development

The countdown is on to ‪#‎WorldHumanitarianDay‬, next Friday 8/19. We'll honor our amazing aid workers, like these two gentlemen who support programs run by us and UNICEF at the Azraq camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan.

Faltama Abamusa, a mother of five in ‪#‎Nigeria‬, fled her home with her husband and kids four months ago. They now live in a government IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camp. Faltama shared some of her thoughts about her experience: "My children were in good health, but now one is malnourished [pictured] and in an OTP [Outpatient Therapeutic Program]. My children also witnessed violence and now they are traumatized. I want nothing more than to ensure my children have good health, adequate clothing, and a good education."
