This report presents the projects and programmes abroad and the balance sheets of the year 2008. Welthungerhilfe demands that German development aid for Africa and Asia should focus more strongly on agriculture and rural development. These are the continents hardest hit by famine. In Africa there are 212 million people without enough food, and in Asia there are 584 million. In 2008 Welthungerhilfe had 37.1 million euros in donations and 101.9 million euros of public funding available for its project work.
