We work to improve the country’s healthcare system and provide life-saving nutrition programmes.
Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world.
Though the country’s economy benefits from ecotourism, ecological research and a growing agricultural sector, the unequal distribution of wealth has left the vast majority of Malagasies living in poverty.
The country is also extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change, in particular droughts, floods and cyclones. The 2019/2020 rainy season was one of the lowest for years and led to smaller harvests than normal. Covid-19 restrictions have also disrupted supply chains and reduced household incomes – increasing the risk of malnutrition for many.
