Chris de Bode

Meme, Diamare, Cameroon

This milky liquid is a bowl of super cereal. It is an emergency supplementary food for children and adults used as a protein supplement to prevent and address nutritional deficiencies. It is a precooked powder of corn, wheat and rice fortified with micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and contains milk powder, sugar and oil. The powder is mixed with water and cooked for 5 to 10 minutes to make a porridge. 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.
