According to The Gambia Poverty and Gender Assessment 2022 report, The Gambia’s poverty rate has climbed to 53.4 percent largely due to COVID-19. Poverty rates remain more of a rural phenomenon – 7 out of every 10 rural dwellers are poor. The larger share of poor people live in urban areas in the more populous Southwest, mainly in Brikama. In order to mitigate the effects of the pandemic, some households resorted to migration from urban to rural areas and splitting large households into smaller sizes as observed during the peak of the pandemic in the second and third quarters. Pray for The Gambia to take steps to improve education quality, maternal and child health, access to water and sanitation, electricity, and school attendance. Pray for the poor Gambians to understand the riches of God’s grace(The Bible, Titus 2:11).
