Thousands of people in the West African country, including refugees from neighbouring countries, struggle to get enough food.
Chad faces numerous humanitarian crises, including thousands being forced to flee their homes, poor access to food and malnutrition. These are fuelled by the effects of climate change, political instability and attacks by armed groups in the Lake Chad basin.
More than 600,000 people in the country are facing a hunger crisis and need emergency food assistance. Across Chad, 57% of the population has no access to clean water and 90% don’t have access to a safe toilet.
Lockdown restrictions introduced to stop the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic have also affected families’ incomes and led to higher food prices.
