Description 

October 2022 – Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has dramatically aggravated the hunger crisis, which was already at record levels at the start of 2022. This triggered disruptions in agricultural production, supply chains and trade that have raised food, fuel and fertilizer prices. Today, an unprecedented 345 October 2022 – Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has dramatically aggravated the hunger crisis, which was already at record levels at the start of 2022. This triggered disruptions in agricultural production, supply chains and trade that have raised food, fuel and fertilizer prices. Today, an unprecedented 345 million people are acutely food insecure, a 155% increase from pre-pandemic levels, with concerns that the number of food insecure people will grow. These estimates include up to 50 million people on the brink of famine and nearly 1,000,000 facing catastrophic conditions across six countries: Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Haiti, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen. With Global Affairs Canada’s support, Action Against Hunger (ACF) provides lifesaving assistance to address the urgent needs of up to 547,000 crisis-affected people in multiple countries over one year. This project focuses on improving the nutritional status of vulnerable populations through delivering emergency nutrition and complementary health and water, sanitation and hygiene services. Project activities include: (1) providing treatment of severe acute malnutrition for girls and boys under the age of five and women of reproductive age; (2) providing gender-sensitive health support for women, girls and boys, such as access to baby and child-friendly spaces and gender-based violence referral pathways; (3) providing gender-sensitive water, sanitation and hygiene services at the community level and in health facilities; (4) providing sexual reproductive health and rights services and support for the decision-making role of women; (5) providing mental health gender-based violence-related support for women, girls, men and boys; and (6) providing nutrition technical support services to global, regional, national, and local actors.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) an estimated 17,000 acutely malnourished women, girls, men and boys received malnutrition prevention and treatment services; (2) 20,000 crisis-affected people have access to safe drinking water; (3) 41, 000 women, girls, men and boys participated in gender-sensitive sanitation and hygiene promotion sessions; (4) provided sexual reproductive rights and maternal services to 5,500 adolescent girls and women; (5) an estimated 17,000 community members and local leaders attended sessions promoting gender equality and greater decision-making role for women within households; and (6) improved quality of nutrition emergency preparedness, response, and recovery. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated, and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
