When disaster strikes poverty and malnutrition including hunger gain privileged over victims of such disaster. To day, over one faith of the world’s population lives in hunger and poverty. Nutritional food is fundamental to earning a living.In the case of disaster, to first provide medical services, shelter, safe drinking water and emergency food ration to victims. This prevents malnutrition and other diseases.

​Malnutrition causes disease; disease prevents people from working; and results in the loss of income which increases hunger and normally affects population, specifically children and women.

During disaster we provide emergency sanctuary and lifesaving assistance that includes first-Aid Medicine, food, shelter and clothing including delivering critical medical and public health services, and providing water, sanitation, and income generation programs whenever disaster strikes. As situation improves, Global Aid Direct replaces emergency assistance with training and community development programs and provide essential materials resources and/or supplies and the technical know-how to enable affected population rebuild their communities and become self-sufficient.

Disasters such as floods, droughts, tornadoes, earthquakes, civil conflicts, and political and economic turmoil inevitably affect all people in their area of occurrence. Certainly, their effect on the poor is often disproportionate, due to the lack of basic necessities when they strikes. 
To prevent and/or alleviate starvation our food aid assistance is active in programs that eliminate micronutrient deficiencies (iodine, iron, vitamin A) which cause serious health problems and reduce the benefits of food intake. This is done by ensuring that food aid provided does not only supply additional calories or energy, but also meet micro nutrient needs as well.

It is also noted that lack of food to sustain life is recognized as a major tragedy affecting the poorest countries. But a parallel and more silent situation of nutritional deficiencies, unhealthy diets and poor hygiene affects many more people and is increasingly seen in industrialized countries, and among the most prosperous people in rural and urban communities in the developing world. 

Breaking this cycle, this program provides vital food aid with complementary initiatives in areas of health, education, agriculture, income generation and institutional strengthening to provide nourishment for refugees, displaced persons, returnees, and drought, earthquake, flood, war, and other non-disaster population – many of whom who would suffered from malnutrition and/or die without adequate food.

Food-for-work projects build or improves infrastructure and provide thousands of workers with employment and family food rations, Teacher’s take-home-ration.  Also, free school meals encourages attendance and improves children’s learning ability. Our food aid intervention include, for example, the distribution of food as incentive for pregnant and nursing women and other vulnerable populations to attend health clinics for immunization and other primary health services.
