FROM THE CHAIRMAN OF ACTION AGAINST HUNGER - USA
I’ve had the singular honor to be involved with Action Against Hunger for nearly two decades, and I’m continuallyimpressed by the dedication and accomplishments of our teams of nearly 400 international relief workers and 5,000volunteers.I believe that AAH is unique. Our organization brings a level of experience and technical sophistication to thechallenge of world hunger that prompts other humanitarian organizations and governments around the world to seek our advice and training. In fact, we wrote the book on combating hunger: Our manual,
 Assessment and Treatment of  Malnutrition in Emergency Situations,
is used not only by our own teams of experts but also by numerous otherorganizations. They also rely on our sharp-eyed analyses of political and nutritional emergencies. Equally important,unlike many other relief organizations, our ultimate goal is to show endangered populations how to feed themselves,to maintain their own supplies of clean water, and to develop skills and trades that enable them to support theirfamilies and communities long after we depart.Our organization began in 1979, when a group of French doctors, scientists, journalists and writers established ACF(Action Contre la Faim /Action Against Hunger) to eliminate hunger worldwide. Professor Alfred Kaestler, NobelPrize recipient for physics, was its first chairman. Its initial programs provided assistance to Afghani refugees inPakistan, rescued Ugandan populations from famine due to civil war and drought, and helped Cambodian refugeesin Thailand. Since then, ACF has brought similar relief to Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Burundi,Cambodia, Chad, Colombia, Congo, East Timor, Ethiopia, Georgia, Guatemala, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, IndonesiaKenya, Kosovo, Laos, Liberia, Mali, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nicaragua, Niger, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia,Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Tajikistan, and Venezuela.In 1985, American Friends of AAH was established in the United States to broaden the support and implementationof ACF’s programs. ACF opened additional headquarters in Spain in 1994 and in the UK in 1995. The fourheadquarters share our name, logo, mandate andcharter of principles, as well as human, financial and technicalresources. Today, all four work in close cooperation and pool resources to provide programs in more than 40countries worldwide.Due to the success of our innovative and life-savingTherapeutic Feeding Centersand supplementary feedingprograms, the international community today recognizes Action Against Hunger as a leader in the fight againstmalnutrition. AAH’s quarter century of experience gives us a wealth of expertise in the design and implementationof our integrated programs. Meanwhile, our research strives constantly to improve our protocols, even as we savemore than 5 million lives every year. This Annual Report will tell you what we did in 2003 to fulfill our mission andachieve our goals.Burton Haimes
