Chris de Bode

Meme, Diamare, Cameroon

A bowl of fish bones, all that remains of a meal. These small, brittle, dried fish have almost no meat on their bones but are used to season bland staple food, such as boiled maize. One small plastic bag, from Meme market, containing about seven fish costs about 200 CFA (GBP 0.27p).
The extreme north of Cameroon is suffering a food shortage exacerbated by climate change and conflict with Boko Haram. Fighting has spread across the borders from Nigeria into the countries of the Lake Chad region creating a refugee and famine crisis. Once an intrepid tourist destination boasting Waza national park, the extreme north of Cameroon now hosts people fleeing violence housed in unnamed refugee camps where they are lucky if they manage to get a single meal each day.
