Africa is the poorest continent on earth. Almost every second person living in sub-Saharan Africa lives below the poverty line. Those most affected by poverty in Africa are women and their children.
An estimated 388.7 million people in Sub-saharan Africa live in extreme poverty.
44% of Ethiopians live in extreme poverty.
That is over 44 million people suffering the burdens of poverty and living a life quite literally starved of access to health, hope and opportunity for a better life.
A life of poverty drastically increases a person’s risks of chronic and often fatal physical and mental illness, hunger and malnutrition, social isolation and lack of resources or support - all leading to early mortality.
