The people of Guinea-Bissau are plagued with poverty and hunger. A terrifying 70% of the 1.8 million residents of this West African nation live below the poverty line, with over half of people in some areas classed as food insecure, not knowing where their next meal will come from.
Hunger in Guinea-Bissau
Since its independence in 1974, Guinea-Bissau has been ravaged by political instability and famine, resulting in high levels of poverty and infant mortality.
With almost 85% of the population relying on agriculture as their main source of income, irregular rainfall and weather conditions have crippled the fragile economy, causing unimaginable suffering across many villages.
