The reality of hunger across the world
Imagine waking up every morning with no food in the house, worried about where the next meal is going to come from for you and your family? Imagine going to bed, hungry, every single night having barely eaten that day. Imagine watching your child cry out from hunger.
Food is a basic necessity for survival and also the key to a healthy life. Without regular healthy meals children struggle to go to school, carers struggle to work, and communities are left battling to survive. However, you can help alleviate this terrible burden for millions of people by helping to provide meals for those in need and donating towards building food security solutions. Donate now.
“He is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour goes hungry.”

The impact of hunger across the world
Tragically, 828 million people go hungry each and every day in some of the world’s poorest communities.
In 2022, the WFP (World Food Programme) declared 2022 a year of unprecedented hunger as a total of 50 million across 45 countries are on the brink of famine. The issue is at its worse in the region of East Africa, with Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia being among the hardest hit.
How Islamic Relief are providing food to those in need
At Islamic Relief, we’ve been working with communities across the globe for over 30 years. We know just how important a nutritious diet is. That’s why we’re striving to ensure that no child or adult goes hungry – to feed a family in need is life-changing.
We work to provide sustainable long-term food solutions for communities in need, as well as offering short-term lifesaving interventions in response to emergencies.
We distribute seeds and train locals to improve agricultural production, and we have introduced small-scale fish farming to enable families to improve their diet and increase their income.
With additional kitchen gardens to help women in local communities and irrigation schemes to increase agricultural productivity, we’re enabling communities to grow more food. What’s more, when natural disaster-hits, we’re straight on the ground to support communities in need.
By supporting our Islamic Relief, you’ll be helping to feed a family in their time of crisis. In doing so, you’re helping to fight food poverty, to ensure hunger no more for communities in the long-term.
