Your support, however big or small, makes a difference to change lives in these countries;
Madagascar: Approximately 69% of the population of the country lives below the poverty level threshold of $1 a day.
South Sudan: Having become an independent country only in 2011, Sudan is one of the world’s youngest countries. As such, the country’s economy is rather underdeveloped. It also has some of the world’s least developed infrastructure.
Mozambique: The country faces the problems of chronic child malnutrition, poor literacy rates, improper access to health facilities, and more.
Malawi: High rates of HIV/AIDS, poor literacy rates, poor health and hygiene, corruption, landlocked geography, etc., are some of the factors responsible for the country low per capita income levels.
Niger: Over 80% of the country’s land area is covered by the Sahara Desert. The non-desert sections of the country are threatened by frequent periods of drought and also increasing desertification.
Liberia: The economy of the country is heavily dependent on foreign aid and foreign direct investment. The economy of Liberia went through a period of major decline that was triggered by the outbreak of a civil war in the country in 1989.
Burundi: The country’s landlocked geography, low literacy rates, poor legal system, lack of economic freedom, and high rates of HIV/AIDS are barriers to the economic progress of Burundi. Burundians also have to deal with high rates of corruption, poor health facilities, scarcity of food, and weak infrastructure.
