ABOUT US

Since our launch in 2014, the team at Hunger Aid has worked tirelessly to promote our cause. We are fortunate to have volunteers and staff from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do. This is what enables us to achieve our goals year after year.

While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making a significant impact. We don’t measure our success through just facts and figures but through happy faces and heartwarming feedback. See how you can become part of the difference.

The C.O.R.E. values we hold: Compassion: Compassion is at the heart of Hunger Aid's mission. We approach our work with deep empathy and a genuine desire to alleviate the suffering caused by hunger and poverty. We believe that every individual deserves compassion and dignity, and we strive to make a positive impact on their lives. Opportunity: We are committed to providing opportunities for those in need. Hunger Aid believes that by creating opportunities for education, skill development, and economic empowerment, we can break the cycle of poverty and hunger, giving individuals the chance to build a better future for themselves and their communities. Resilience: Resilience is a core value that drives us to persevere in the face of challenges. We understand that the fight against hunger and poverty can be daunting, but we remain steadfast in our commitment to finding innovative solutions and adapting to changing circumstances. We believe in the resilience of individuals and communities, and we work alongside them to overcome adversity. Empowerment: Empowerment is at the core of our approach. We empower individuals by providing them with the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to take control of their lives and improve their circumstances. We believe that true change comes from within, and we aim to empower individuals and communities to become self-sufficient and self-reliant. These C.O.R.E. values guide Hunger Aid in its mission to transform the world by ending hunger, nurturing lives, and creating a future filled with compassion, resilience, and boundless possibilities.
