Introduction

The Fund for Hunger was created in 1984 when Professor Abdus Salam (founder of ICTP) appealed to staff, consultants and visiting scientists of ICTP to create a fund in order to have a small amount of money set aside for urgent emergencies, wherever they might occur.

Since then, ICTP staff have been contributing regularly by having a small amount deducted from their monthly salary. At the same time scientists visiting ICTP started contributing to the Fund. At present the monthly contribution from ICTP staff  amounts to Euro 1,300.
 
We are doing our best to pursue Professor Abdus Salam's ideals in this respect. We are constantly searching and reviewing possible beneficiaries.Thanks go to all our contributors and to all those who are constantly increasing the sum they contribute, thus demonstrating how much we, at ICTP, are aware of the needs in developing countries.
