This region is one of beautiful beaches, mountains, and rich biodiversity. Usually areas like this are full of tourists and tourism businesses. Yet, due to the history and current political situation of the region, it can sometimes still feel 'undiscovered' by the outside world.
The region is almost 100% Islamic and the majority of the people here have yet to hear the good news of the Kingdom of God. The region is also among the poorest in our country. The majority of the region's population (77 percent) lives in rural areas, where almost one-third of households live below the poverty line. The impact of poverty is particularly seen in children suffering from acute or chronic malnutrition.
