A year of unrest in the African country has forced hundreds of thousands of Burundians to flee their homes. Millions of people aren’t getting the food they need.
Concern has been working in Burundi since 1994, and our projects are still running despite the unrest. These help communities find better ways to earn a living, eat a nutritious diet and stay healthy. The results will help people escape poverty and build a brighter future.
We are also treating and preventing malnutrition in refugee camps in Rwanda, where many people who have fled the violence are staying. And in Burundi itself we are watching the situation closely, ready to do what we can to support those who are most affected.
