ACF is a nongovernmental, non-political, non-confessional, non-profit organisation that was created in 1979 in France. Its aim is to save lives by combating hunger, physical suffering and the associated distress that endanger the lives of vulnerable people children, women and men.
ACF intervenes in the following situations:
• In natural or man-made disasters that threaten food security or that result in famine.
• In situations of social/ economic breakdown, linked to internal or external circumstances that place groups of people in extremely vulnerable positions.
• In situations where survival depends on humanitarian aid.
ACF Spain brings assistance either during the crisis itself through emergency interventions, or afterwards through rehabilitation and sustainable development programmes. The goal of ACF programmes is to enable beneficiaries to regain their autonomy and self-sufficiency as quick as possible.
