With such large numbers of fellow humans suffering around the world we must heed the call to action now by reaching as many hungry people as possible. Natural disasters, conflicts, and now the Covid-19 pandemic have all led to this global hunger crisis; inflicting hardship on those with the least resources.

Here are the areas the One Ummah Foundation Food Programs are currently serving:
