Christian Aid Week 15th - 21st May
In Zimbabwe, the climate crisis is causing aching hunger for families like Jessica’s.
This year the Carlford Churches will be collecting in services and online. Can you help us?
The combined effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, conflict, and drought have robbed her of the power to provide for her children. And 7,000 miles away, the war in Ukraine will drive up food prices in Zimbabwe, and around the globe. Without the fertiliser and food - like wheat and cooking oil - that Ukraine and Russia produce, vulnerable families will be pushed even deeper into hunger.
But hope does not disappoint. Hope lives in you.
With every gift, every action, every prayer, we celebrate and share hope with our sisters and brothers facing crisis around the world, from Ukraine to Zimbabwe.
‘My children crave a decent meal, but I can’t provide... It pains me to send them to bed hungry.’ Jessica is hungry - for a good meal, to earn a decent living, to provide a more hopeful future for her family. But she's anything but helpless. Hope is in her eyes. Read her story, and learn how your gifts could help women like her provide food - and hope - for their families.
