World Vision’s Impact on Hunger

People like you helped make big headway against hunger in 2014.

One in nine people in the world don’t get enough to eat. Many poor farmers are unable to grow enough food to feed their own families, much less sell to get income for essentials like education and healthcare. That’s why World Vision partners with communities to address immediate food needs — but also to equip them to grow food for the long term.

We couldn’t do this without the support of people like you!

The following achievements represent some of what was accomplished in 2014:

7.5 million food

8 million food insecure people

30 climate projects

World Vision is the largest global distribution partner of the United Nations’ World Food Program.

Achievements made possible in 2014 thanks to World Vision donors worldwide.
