RURAL FAMILIES IN KOTA BELUD ARE GOING HUNGRY WITHOUT ENOUGH FOOD EVERY DAY
Rural Challenges -1
Poverty is widespread in Sabah. The continuing Covid-19 pandemic and rising cost of basic food have worsened the livelihoods of many already struggling rural families. In the over 74 scattered rural Kota Belud communities, food insecurity is a serious issue as most underprivileged families and their children are barely eating enough to survive each day.
Farming is one of the only means for rural families to make a living and eat, but due to poor farming conditions, it has become extremely challenging and brings little results. Most rural families are forced to spend their earnings on buying their daily food from shops, and those who cannot afford face health issues from poor diets, especially in children’s development.
