Christmas Appeal

Build hope for communities like Kawite's in the face of the climate crisis.


Together, we can build hope

In Ethiopia, and around the world, people living in poverty are on the frontline of the climate crisis.

Families are losing water, food, homes and livelihoods. Every day, they walk further, dig deeper, work harder, and build stronger to survive. Unrelenting. Determined.

This Christmas, we stand united with those facing drought in Ethiopia, and millions more families around the world battling the effects of the climate crisis.

We give, we act, and we pray.- because love calls us to action.

Hope for a better future is the greatest gift we can give this season. Please stand together with women like Kawite and give what you can this Christmas.

Love never fails. Even when crisis threatens, love builds hope.

Love builds hope in some of the world’s toughest places.

Love builds resilience in some of the world’s fiercest climates.

In the face of disease, drought and darkness, hope remains.


This Christmas, we stand with our neighbours near and far in crisis.

With hope, we build foundations of love that will transform lives.


Our traditions may look different in this year of social distance, yet love is never distant.

Love calls us to action.
