Burkina Faso

Response to Humanitarian Crisis

Burkina Faso faces a severe humanitarian crisis characterized by violence, displacement, and food insecurity, leaving over one million people displaced and communities with limited access to healthcare, education, and clean water. Since 2003, our ongoing efforts from our Ghana office aim to alleviate the crisis through food aid and sustainable initiatives, focusing on supporting impoverished farming communities and addressing the risk of malnutrition.
