Fighting Child Hunger

Every ten seconds, a child dies from hunger-related diseases due to a lack of nutritious food. Globally, millions of children living in poverty suffer hunger and starvation- and something as simple as a balanced meal is a novelty for many.

In conflict-zones, millions suffer from famine leaving children severely malnourished, and this is where our work comes in.

At Muslim Hands, we take pride in supporting children from different walks of life. A central part of our programme is to ensure children are provided with nutritious meals to sustain them throughout the day.

Through our Food4Kids programmes, we aim at providing children all over the world with balanced meals, essential vitamin supplements and regular medical check-ups and treatment.

We also raise awareness and train teachers and healthcare workers on recognizing and treating malnutrition.

Currently, we are providing over 1,800 meals a day, however, through your generous donations, we can reach even more children and improve food security and nutrition in communities globally.

Key Facts

How hunger affects children

1 in 6 children in developing countries are underweight

19 million children are facing extreme hunger globally

Schools of Excellence: Feeding Programmes

Our Schools of Excellence globally ensure that feeding programmes are implemented in the curriculum to prevent children suffering from hunger and malnutrition. As such, orphans and vulnerable children attending the schools are provided with healthy balanced meals daily, alongside regular medical check-ups and treatment. 

By improving nutrition, you enable the chances of a child to succeed in life, allowing them to break the cycle of poverty.

The Dangers of Malnutrition

With at least 20 million children around the world suffering from acute malnutrition, the importance of providing young people with access to nutritious food and basic healthcare is unquestionable.

Every child has the right to go to school and play with their family and friends, without the ever-present shadow of hunger and sickness looming over them.
