Elephants, lions, buffalo, and giraffes – Chad is home to hundreds of wildlife species. Likewise, over 150 people groups live within the country’s borders, making it an incredibly diverse state. The economy is strongly agricultural, with eight in ten people relying on subsistence farming and raising livestock.
In recent years, religious freedom has been spreading and new people groups are receiving the Gospel. As a result of the horror in Darfur, 400,000 refugees have sought safety in Chad and have received Christ through missionary efforts to the region.
