About Ecuador

Ecuador is approximately thirty percent of the size of Turkey with a population of almost 16 million. Ecuador, despite its oil boom in the 1970s and the resulting economic growth, still suffers from widespread poverty that affects around 35 percent of its inhabitants. Chronic malnutrition is one of the bleaker results of poverty, affecting approximately 24 percent of children under two years old in the country. This situation is worse in the rural areas of the country where two out of three people live in poverty. In the Andean provinces, chronic malnutrition hovers around 50 percent.
