F is for Food for the Hungry

Food for the Hungry (FH) is the organization we are working with here in Bolivia. FH has been in existence since 1971 when Dr Larry Ward felt led to start the organization to provide help and hope to the poorest and most needy survivors of disasters and calamities around the world. What started out as a compassionate response to a hurting world by one man has developed into a vibrant ministry composed of more than 2,000 staff members who walk alongside the poor in more than 26 developing countries.


FH started working in disaster and emergency relief, but over the years it has changed its primary emphasis to the long-term development of the extremely poor, recognizing their creativity and ability to resolve their own problems-, which is why over 90% of staff in the field are recruited locally. Through them FH work for any combination of the following: Food provision; Water provision for drinking; Sanitation and irrigation; Primary health care; Income enhancement / micro enterprise development; Education and Empowering indigenous peoples.


You can discover more about the work of FH by looking at the following websites including FH United Kingdom and FH Bolivia
