Action Against
Hunger began its work in Uganda since 1980 in response to famine conditions in
the Karamoja Region where we saved the lives of undernourished children while
building the capacities of the community. We have been continuously operating
in Uganda for the last 22 years delivering interventions in nutrition, WASH and
Food Security and Livelihoods. For the last three years and with the same aim
of saving lives and empowering the community, we have been working in the Northern
