Where we work
Our annual report
Why are we in Burundi? With high levels of poverty, malnutrition, and maternal mortality, Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Concern Worldwide has been operational in Burundi since 1997 and currently implements programmes focusing on health, nutrition, livelihoods, and social protection.
Almost 84% of Burundians are living in extreme poverty
The maternal mortality rate in Burundi is amongst the worst in the world with 548 deaths per 100,000 live births, and an under-five mortality rate of 54.4 per 1,000 live births making it one of the most dangerous places in the world to have a child. Our work in Burundi focuses on nutrition, health, and livelihoods, with a particular emphasis on improving nutrition and overall health among people who are excluded from the health system. We specialise in community-based health and nutrition interventions.
Over the course of 2021, 10,295 families benefited from cash transfers and 6,945 received cash support in the context of an emergency.
