About Welthungerhilfe


Welthungerhilfe is one of the largest private aid agencies in Germany; politically and religiously independent. The organisation fights for "Zero Hunger by 2030". Since being founded in 1962, it has provided funding of EUR 4.2 billion for more than 10,369 overseas projects in 70 countries.

In 2020 alone, Welthungerhilfe supported about 14.3 million people with its 539 overseas projects in 35 countries. In real terms, that means: Many people now harvest more and can therefore improve their diets. They now have clean drinking water or toilets at home, which leaves them less susceptible to illness. Others are earning or producing more and can begin an education. For the children, Welthungerhilfe's support means a chance of improved physical and mental development.

Welthungerhilfe bases its efforts on the principle of help for self-help, which it implements with measures ranging from rapid disaster relief to rehabilitation to long-term development cooperation projects with national and international partner organisations.

Welthungerhilfe (WHH) has a vision of a world in which everyone can lead a self-determined life in dignity and justice, free from hunger and poverty. Hunger is the biggest solvable problem in the world. WHH wants to do all it can to find a lasting solution to this problem. "Zero Hunger wherever we work by 2030" - this is the clear goal for the organisation with reference to the Sustainable Development Goals defined in its strategy.
