Christian Aid Week 2022

Thank you for joining us this year to help turn hunger into hope. There's still time to donate and pay in the funds you've raised.

In Zimbabwe, the climate crisis is causing aching hunger for families like Jessica’s.

For the first time in a generation, global poverty is rising. The combined effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, conflict, and drought have robbed communities like Jessica's of the power to provide for their children. It's unjust.

This Christian Aid Week:

  • We stand with the resilient women - like Jessica - who are determined to lift their families out of hunger
  • We raise our voices to call for climate justice
  • We pray that families will stay strong during times of drought

Together, we hope to restore justice to our world, and protect the future for our children and grandchildren. 

Please give to help women grow crops that survive in the drought. You can help turn hunger into hope.

With every gift, every action, every prayer, every one of us can change lives.

Jessica's story

‘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.

It's not too late to donate

Your gifts could help Jessica set up water taps on her farm, learn to grow food, and provide seeds that thrive in drought – giving her all she needs to turn her dry, dusty land into a garden of hope.
