COVID-19 Response & Resources

As the global community continues to adjust to the daily challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we at The Hunger Project remain committed to slowing its spread and mitigating its impact.

The core tenets of our work are as relevant as ever. We continue to support the leadership and resilience of our community partners in the face of challenges, equipping them with reliable information and connecting them with needed services.

Since implementing operational and programmatic measures in late February 2020, our global staff and community leaders have:

  • Distributed more than 45,000 public health posters across nearly 600 villages in national or local languages;
  • Reached more than 5 million listeners with radio broadcasts on food security and public health;
  • Made and distributed almost 280,000 cloth face masks;
  • Distributed more than 76,000 kg of hand sanitizer and almost 215,000 kg of soap;
  • Organized THP WASH workshops with about 98,500 attendees;
  • Installed more than 7,600 tippy tap hand-washing stations (mostly in Benin and Malawi); and
  • distributed more than 217,000 food rations to struggling community members.
