For 40 years, across nearly 50 countries, Action Against Hunger has been leading the global fight against hunger, working to ensure that everyone has sustainable access to the food, clean water, training and healthcare they need to thrive. From catastrophic natural disasters, to conflict, to spikes in malnutrition rates brought on by drought and floods, Action Against Hunger responds to humanitarian emergencies all over the world, delivering immediate lifesaving services to families in distress.
The ALBORADA Trust started supporting Action Against Hunger in 2017, assisting our response to the Rohingya refugee crisis in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh. With three grants totalling £185,000, the Trust has allowed us to operate community kitchens serving hot nutritious meals, train staff and community volunteers on the skills they need to prevent outbreaks of diseases such as diarrhoea, measles and cholera, and install handwashing stations. In 2019, the ALBORADA Trust agreed a grant of £75,000 to support our drought response programme in Somalia.
