Stand with mums this Christmas and help the next generation grow.

Impossible choices. Not anymore.

This Christmas, we’ll hear the familiar story of Mary and Joseph arriving in Bethlehem to discover there was no place for them to stay - an impossible choice for an imminent mother.

As you come together to remember Jesus’ birth, your church can give a gift to stand with mums facing difficult choices for their children

'Things are changing for the better' - meet Adut Mariu

Climate chaos in South Sudan forced Adut to give her three children dirty water. She knew it wasn’t safe, but she had no choice. 

Not anymore.

In this short film you'll discover how Adut no longer has to face difficult choices.

Climate chaos in South Sudan forced Adut to give her children dirty water.

She knew it wasn’t safe, but she had no choice. Now, Adut has access to a borehole near her home.

That means clean water for her children to drink and peace of mind for a loving mum. Mums on the frontline of the climate crisis face impossible choices every day.

But our decision to stand with them is an easy one.

A gift from your church this Christmas could help build more boreholes, provide seeds and farming tools, and give mums the chance to set up a small business.   

Use our special carol 'When out of poverty is born’ in your Christmas worship, and take a collection, to stand with mums around the world.
