What does it mean to take a holistic approach to ending hunger?
It means model farms to show farmers how to handle disasters.
It means providing trees, seeds and community seed banks.
It means training and building the capacity of local groups.

What about when the big problem is actually incompetent, corrupt government? Not saying that is always the cause of hunger of course - sometimes natural disasters cause famine and such.

 It is not unknown for dictators to steal food from charities and then sell it off at a profit to the very people it was supposed to help for free.

Schools are important, but when we only provide basic schooling and not universities of higher education, we play into dictator hands; basic education is something dictators want, but higher education is a threat to them because it teaches people to think and empowers them to get better jobs than just menial labor.

Sand dams. Wells. Rock catchment systems. Pumps. Water pans.

Across Sub-Saharan Africa's arid climates, our Water for Life program works with communities to make sure more people have access to clean water: http://cwsannualreport.org/overview/africa/water-for-life/ #WorldWaterDay

This month marks the 4th anniversary of the devastating war in ‪#‎Syria‬. This conflict has led to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world; nearly half of Syria's 24 million people have fled their homes.
CWS is responding to this unprecedented crisis in a number of ways:  http://www.cwsglobal.org/blog/syria-unprecedented-crisis.html
This month marks the 4th anniversary of the devastating war in Syria with little hope of it ending anytime soon. This conflict has led to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world with 3.9 million Syrians escaping to surrounding countries and another 7.8 million displaced within Syria.
