Cause We Are Fighting For
There are many people struggling to feed their families in these uncertain times. The coronavirus pandemic has shifted the world’s attention to the deplorable health sector in many countries. However, enough attention has not been given to hunger pandemic, which is becoming apparent. It should be noted that Food supply is part of the immediate health response to COVID-19.
- One-third of children under five are stunted. This statistic is particularly concerning because it is twice the rate of Thailand and three times the rate of Tunisia. Stunting in children is a common symptom of undernourishment and can only be alleviated with a steady supply of adequate food.
- The insurgency in the country has led to many displaced people without access to food. The reign of the extremist group has left 8.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance in Nigeria.
- On top of the rates of displacement, 5.1 million Nigerians are malnourished. Being on the move makes food sources even less reliable.
