North Korea

The food supply in North Korea is dramatic. Several factors contribute to this emergency: Soils are depleted, fertilizers are lacking, drought and flooding have affected the crops. Trade embargo and border closures encapsulate the country from the rest of the world.

FOOD FOR CHILDREN
Children suffer the most, one in three of whom is malnourished. »Their hunger drives them to gnaw on tree bark«, the AVC project manager reports with dismay. Thanks to its own production, AVC can feed 10 000 children five days a week.
FOOD FOR THE FIELD
To save people from starvation, AVC has been operating a fertilizer factory since 2012. The experience has been extremely positive: fertilized fields produce up to five times the yield. The factory has developed well and is now self-sustaining.
