Welcome to Operation Hunger.org. A South African Development, Nutrition and Relief focussed NPO established over 35 years ago.
Operation Hunger was started in 1978 by Dr. Selma Browde with Dr. Nthato Motlana after they saw the agony, anguish and toll that malnutrition inflicted on the South African people and its economy. Operation Hunger was accordingly strategically registered as a Fund-Raising Organisation in 1980 to better influence the transformation its founders sought.
We therefore have a history of not only concern, but positive action in the fight against malnutrition in South African homes, schools and communities using sustainable and proven methods that empower people and their communities.
Rallying all against hunger
Operation Hunger is constantly running campaigns to raise funds for identified needs and worthy causes on behalf of the beneficiaries who themselves, are not able to do so in an effective manner.
We seek to improve levels of nutrition in impoverished communities through sustainable integrated income generating food security schemes (e.g. soup kitchens, gardens, broiler, egg laying projects).
To provide clean and accessible water to households where water is not readily available (e.g. rain water tanks, water rollers, boreholes/hand pumps, windmills, spring protection) so that individuals and communities can develop gardens, support livestock and be protected against water borne diseases.
