FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY UK 

We are an international Christian partnership working in 20 of the world's poorest nations, meeting both physical and spiritual hungers. Our primary emphasis is on long-term development among the extremely poor, recognising their dignity, creativity and ability to solve their own problems.
