Day 7 - Celebrating with nothing

Day 7: Celebrating with nothing

The political turmoil that began in Burundi over a year ago has caused suffering on a huge scale. Even before this conflict Burundi was the third poorest country on earth. Now, people are facing a rise in food prices, a lack of availability and little knowledge of nutrition. Christmas will come and pass – there will be a reason to celebrate, but nothing to celebrate with.

Evelyn is 23 years old, married, with two children. For her and her family, Christmas Day is no easier than any other day of the year – for they are among more than four million people going hungry in Burundi today.

She says, ‘After the birth of my son, I no longer have any strength because we don’t have anything to eat.’
