Famine in Chad

Famine in Chad

View Gallery

Hunger in Chad is an alarm bell that has rung for too many years. Too many factors may influence the severe lack of food in Chad none of which have changed in a way that alleviates hunger. Over 80% of its population work in agriculture; yet 87% live below the poverty line. Living with little over a dollar a day, people in Chad survive from local farming when the climate and the pocket allows. Food relief from humanitarian international aid in 2019 could only assist 2 million out of 4.3 million people in need. The famine in Chad, therefore, translates into a high maternal mortality rate (980 in 100 000 live births) and a shocking 87% of children suffering from some form of malnutrition.
