Hunger in the Gambia

Due to low rainfall, severe crop failures have plagued the Gambia. Rice harvests have fallen by nearly 80%, leaving many of these desperate people dependant on crop harvests for their livelihoods and food supply in poverty and hunger.

With the nation’s agricultural industry in disrepair, many vulnerable people including children suffer from acute malnutrition, which causes complications such as stunted growth, a condition that affects nearly 25% of young children in some areas.

Ranking 175th out of 188 countries in the UNDP Human Development Index, which measures life expectancy and poverty, this is a country on the brink.
