Today, 854 million people around the world still suffer from hunger and more than one billion people lack access to drinking water. Action Against Hunger's food security programs include both emergency programs - such as emergency food distributions - as well as long-term programs. These programs aim at boosting agricultural and/or economic activity providing populations with sufficient access to food of a satisfactory quality and improving self-sufficiency. *******www.actionagainsthunger****

As part of its International Cooperation Programmes, Reach Italia NGO works in Burkina Faso in order to ensure food security and agro-forestry-pastoral development in those lands, heavily degraded, that do not guarantee the subsistence needed by the population. Most of the international interventions and cooperation programmes fighting desertification are aimed at soil conservation in order to prevent the process of desertification, with poor or no committment in recovering those lands already affected by this everlasting process. Human forces alone are not sufficient to restore the environment and assure the conservation of lands, in our case, in the Province of Oudalan, in the Sahel Region. Reach Italia has decided to pursue a new path of development through the introduction and use of technologies, that are essentials to secure a future for those people and those areas of the world increasingly vulnerables to climate changes and increasingly under the threat of food-crises. Thanks to the technology designed by the engineer Vallerani (Vallerani System), in partnership with Deserto Verde in Burkina Faso, the support of Parco Nord in Milan and Same Deutz Fahr S.p.a., Reach Italia aims to reverse the process of desertification (declared inevitable a few years ago) by ploughing highly degraded lands. The results are surprising, and as the international community has initiated extensive studies on this technology we hope that in the future this challenge will be won.

An Action Against Hunger staff member in Kenya giving a brief presentation on how something as simple as a Bio-Sand filter can transform dirty and unhealthy water into clear and healthy water.

In the Heart of the Congo, at the end of a terrible war, a handful of aid workers help refugees who have lost everything. They mobilize villagers to dig wells for clean water, train health workers, and nurse children with acute malnutrition back to health. They are confronted with threats of violence from roving militias, systemic corruption, and a legacy of colonial dependency. And there are times when it is very clear that these workers exist apart from those they aim to help, benefiting from services and luxuries of the modern world that are beyond the reach of the rural Congolese. In spite of this the Congolese and European aid workers struggle to encourage the will, and build the skills, necessary for self-sufficient future. Heart of the Congo is a film about courage, hope, and perseverance. *******www.actionagainsthunger****
