A year of big challenges - Greatest level of project funding since establishment of Welthungerhilfe

We fight to eradicate hunger. In 2015, we were able to provide the largest support of projects since the foundation of Welthungerhilfe: A total of 214.4 million Euro were available to us to fight hunger and poverty.

Facts and figures

The year 2015 was a year of big challenges. Refugees - the central theme in Europe in 2015. It also shaped the work of Welthungerhilfe. We assisted the people who have had to leave their homes, in their countries of origin as well as in neighbouring countries, e.g. in Turkey, South Sudan or Niger.

Our donors supported us enormously. Thanks to your help, we were able to assist 7.31 milion people in 2015 alone. With 387 overseas projects in 40 countries we contributed towards enabling people to realise a dignified life. 23 domestic projects increased awareness of hunger and poverty in German and European politics and among the public. Institutional grants amounted to 158.9 million Euro.

Focus: humanitarian aid

Due to ongoing crises and conflicts, as well as the severe earthquake in Nepal, in 2015 the focus of the programme was even more on humanitarian emergency aid measures.

Administrative costs amounted to 2.2 per cent of the total expenditure, expenditures for advertising and general public relations work amounted to 4.3 per cent.
