The MDRT Foundation announced that it is partnering with The Hunger Project to “pioneer people-focused strategies” aimed at combatting global hunger.

“The Hunger Project and MDRT Foundation recognize the problem of poverty and hunger is not an issue that can be solved with just food, clothing or shelter,” stated Ted Rusinoff, MDRT Foundation President. “Instead, we know that people are the solution, and we believe in The Hunger Project’s inspiring principles of transformative leadership, gender equality, sustainability and empowered social transformation to combat these global challenges.”

The MDRT Foundation – the charitable arm of MDRT – is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. Since its inception, it has donated $34 million to charitable organizations around the world.

During its annual meeting held in June, MDRT members raised more than $220,000 in funds towards the Foundation’s global grants program and The Hunger Project’s mission, which is to eradicate global hunger by 2030 through widespread adoption of holistic, sustainable approaches in communities.
