Sudha has carved a strong niche in being a voice for the underprivileged through her charitable contributions.

Paris/ Hyderabad: With a commitment and vision to continually pledge out of her personal wealth, Hyderabad based industrialist Sudha Reddy today handed over a grant to two diverse Charities at a small intimate gathering in Paris.

With a generous and empathetic heart for philanthropy, Sudha has successfully carved a strong niche in being a voice for the underprivileged through her charitable contributions over the years.

After months of interactions with industry stalwarts to understand the immediate and urgent requirements to confront challenges in different sectors, 2 NGOs were identified as recipients - ‘Áction Against Hunger’ and ‘Breast Cancer Research Foundation‘.

Headquartered in Paris, ‘Action Against Hunger’ is a 38 year old organization that is present in over 50 countries today and have effectively led the global fight against hunger. With close to 6500 staff, AAH is credited with assisting over 14 million people across the globe. In India, Action Against Hunger operated through it’s branch - Fight Hunger Foundation (FHF) which is its 6th Headquarters.

Speaking at the gathering to hand over the endowment, Sudha Reddy commented, “I’m extremely pleased to be able to partner with not just one but two foundations that are going the extra mile when it comes to making a difference.

I was grieved to be presented with statistics that prove the huge number of children who are dying because of hunger. Malnutrition is killing 20 million children in the world today and it’s a shame that children are dying because of hunger across the world in the 21st century. My country, India, is one where malnutrition is a huge crisis and emergency and we carry 40% of the global load of malnutrition. In our joint vision towards a hunger free world, I feel blessed that I am able to help build a better life for children everywhere and support the exemplary work of Action Against Hunger and Fight Hunger Foundation.

May we all continue to join hands as we uplift each other in fighting the perils of social evil.”

Thomas Ribemont, Chairman of Action Against Hunger, France said, “I would like to convey my huge gratitude to Sudha Reddy for her very generous donation to Fight Hunger Foundation. Her support will help us immensely in our effort to eradicate malnutrition in children in India. Mrs Reddy has strengthened our hands in our fight against hunger and we are convinced that with her backing we will soon realize our vision of a world where no child dies of hunger. I am grateful to her for choosing to support Action Against Hunger and assure her of our commitment and motivation towards a cause of creating a hunger free world.”
