auditor’s letter



To the Board of Directors Action Against Hunger – USA New York, New York We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of Action Against Hunger – USA as of December 31, 2008 and 2007, and the related statements of activities, changes in net assets, functional expenses and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of Action Against Hunger – USA’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Action Against Hunger – USA as of December 31, 2008 and 2007, and its changes in net assets and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued our report dated July 24, 2009 on our consideration of Action Against Hunger – USA’s internal control over financial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grant agreements and other matters. The purpose of that report is to describe the scope of our testing of internal control over financial reporting and compliance and the results of that testing, and not to provide an opinion on the internal control over financial reporting or on compliance. That report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards and should be considered in assessing the results of our audit.

acf international figures
Acf internAtionAl Named for its founding member, Action contre la Faim (ACF), ACF International was founded in 1979 in Paris. Committed to principled humanitarian action, the network shares its combined human resources, breadth of experience, and technical expertise in its pursuit of a world without hunger. Today, the network consists of five independent organizations headquartered in New York (ACF-USA), Paris (ACF-France), Madrid (ACF-Spain), London (ACF-UK), and Montreal (ACF-Canada).
Thanks to the joint efforts of the five ACF headquarters, ACF International was able to respond in a timely and effective manner to a range of complex emergencies in 2008, including post-election violence in Kenya, Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar, Typhoon Fengshen in the Philippines, and the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Darfur.
