Chad, once a holding of France, endured three decades of civil war and invasions before peace was restored in 1990. 80% of Chad’s population relies on subsistence farming and livestock raising. Chad's economy has long been handicapped by its landlocked position, high energy costs, and its history of instability.

World Renew provided food, seed, and tools to families in Chad between 2007 and 2009 as a response to their prolonged refugee crisis.  However, Chad is not part of a World Renew Ministry Team and there are no World Renew staff in this country.
