Together let’s fight hunger

Support the fight against hunger in Africa and around the world, support SOS Développement Solidarité Internationale

Why fight against hunger in Central Africa?

45 million children under the age of 5 suffer from wasting (underweight caused by malnutrition) and 148 million are stunted (source: UN statistics in 2022). A child suffering from severe wasting is 12 times more likely to die than a well-nourished child. Central African countries are particularly affected by problems linked to malnutrition.

Nothing is more precious than the health of a child. This is why one of the main struggles of the SOS Développement Solidarité Internationale association is to achieve the sustainable development objective SDG 2 defined by the UN, namely: that every person can have access to food, and no longer suffer from hunger by 2030.

How do we act for food security?

The development of sustainable agriculture is one of the main solutions that allows vulnerable populations to ensure their food security.

However, today the agriculture practiced in Central Africa is not mechanized, which requires a lot of labor and effort. The objective of the SOS Développement Solidarité Internationale association is to mechanize agriculture and make it more sustainable and respectful of nature.

Thus, SOS Développement Solidarité Internationale supports the design project for a future processing unit for cassava-derived products. Cassava is a root consumed in all African countries, which makes it possible to produce a multitude of derived products (bread, flour, semolina, cakes, etc.).

This is an autonomous electricity and water project, which promotes local know-how and allows rural women to generate income in order to feed their families, and sustainably fight against hunger.

Promote an agricultural system that protects biodiversity

The development of sustainable agriculture is closely linked to the protection of local natural resources. However, the hunting and fishing methods practiced in Central Africa are based on ancestral techniques which are sometimes harmful to the environment.

For example, for fishing: construction of a dam on a watercourse in order to create a basin into which deadly substances are poured which kill all the fauna present.

For hunting: burn kilometers of savannah in order to drive game towards hunters. Not only does this destroy all the existing fauna and flora in these places, but it also causes the depletion of the land and the drying out of the soil.

The association SOS Développement Solidarité Internationale informs, raises awareness and makes residents responsible for the fact that these practices worsen the climate problems in the region.

The association also provides financial assistance to promote the development of livestock farming in order to definitively stop the practice of hunting and fishing methods that are harmful to the environment.
