CARE has launched a $250 million comprehensive response to this crisis that bridges the full spectrum of food and nutrition insecurity, from emergency response and treatment for severe malnutrition, to transition to short-term recovery and building longer-term plans and systems that prepare families to withstand future shocks.
- Saving lives now: immediate, vital food supplies and cash vouchers, access to job opportunities, and prevention of life-threatening malnutrition.
- Growing food and resilience: with more efficient farming practices, fertilizer alternatives, and safer food storage we will ensure there is a next harvest.
- Changing food systems through advocacy: from working with private sector partners and donors to advocating with governments to prevent repeat crises.
Below, Michelle Nunn, President and CEO of CARE USA, explains the challenges and urgency of the global hunger crisis.
