Global Hunger Crisis


War in Ukraine Creates Deadly Shock Waves of Hunger. In February 2022, war broke out between Russia and Ukraine. As the world bears witness to its atrocities, a global hunger crisis looms for an estimated 863 million people in 91 countries facing hunger and insufficient food consumption. When crisis happens in one part of the world, it can send shock waves across the globe.

For decades, Ukraine has been the breadbasket to the Global South. Ukrainian and Russian grains provide more than one-third of the wheat imported by 45 African and least-developed countries. Shortages of food, fuel and fertilizers from Ukraine and Russia is having a compounding effect-the resulting rise in fuel and fertilizer costs are hampering the ability of smallholder farmers (roughly half of them women) to produce and store enough food in the coming seasons.


CARE has launched a $250 million comprehensive response to the global hunger crisis-so that families now on the brink of famine avoid the direst of consequences and smallholder farmer communities on the cusp of malnutrition ramp up production and tip the balance of nutrition in their favor. Our response bridges the full spectrum of food and nutrition insecurity-from emergency response and treatment for severe malnutrition, to the transition to short-term recovery and longer-term resilience.

Long-Term Impact

Without urgent humanitarian action, we risk letting millions more women, children and families reach the brink of famine. And without immediate investments in increased agricultural production, improved storage and expanded crop diversification, we could face a critical tipping point between under-nutrition and malnutrition in communities already on the margin.
