In Great Need

War-torn and ravaged by drought conditions that brought its food production to the lowest in the world, sub-Saharan Africa is one of the most vulnerable regions in the world. In 2010, 239 million residents were estimated to be undernourished and as much as 47 percent of the population was living on $1.25 a day or less. (Source: World Hunger Education Service)
