‘One Meal A Day’- Portraits of Hunger

Photographer Chris de Bode travelled to Cameroon with the British Red Cross to document the devastating food crisis threatening the Lake Chad region which straddles the borders of Nigeria, Cameraoon, Niger and Chad.

The stories of those affected are presented through food, telling the powerful individual accounts of conflict, displacement, refuge and hospitality of those surviving on so little.

In the Lake Chad region over 10 million people are currently in need of assistance, with 2.3 million people displaced and 7.1 million people food insecure and an estimated 515,000 children suffering with severe acute malnutrition.

This work is currently being shown as an outdoor exhibition at St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, in London until 22 June 2017.

The exhibition, produced by Panos Pictures, aims to give a voice to the millions of people who are surviving on just one meal a day.
