How to use "War-ridden" in context?

War-ridden societies are often left in a precarious state following a conflict. This often means that large swathes of the population are left without hope, with little hope for the future. Thousands of people face displacement, loss of livelihoods, and violence. Post-conflict societies often lack governance, education, and healthcare. This can leave many people in extreme poverty and unable to recover from the traumatic aftermath of war.

War-ridden societies are often characterised by a lack of trust, with communities fearful of each other. This can inhibit the development of local economies, and lead to social and economic instability.
