WHO WE ARE
Welthungerhilfe (WHH) is one of the largest nonprofit aid organisations in Germany with no political or religious affiliation. It was founded in 1962 under the umbrella of the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO). Welthungerhilfe (WHH) provides emergency relief as well as long-term development aid to people in need worldwide. With 407 international projects in 2016, we were able to support 8,4 million people in 39 countries. The fundamental principle of Welthungerhilfe (WHH) is help for self-help: together with local partner organisations, we strengthen structures from the bottom up and ensure success of our project work in the long-term. In line with Core Humanitarian Standards, people in need receive assistance independent of political and religious affiliations, age, gender, race, colour, ethnicity, disability or health status.
