Climate change is happening. We can't ignore its effects any longer.
This Lent and Easter, we’re raising £500k to support climate change projects in the Philippines, and in other countries including Burkina Faso and Kenya.

About the Lent and Easter Appeal
Here in the Philippines, the changing climate has made it harder for fisherfolk like Lope, Eva and Mary Ann to support their families.
Life is tougher now for vulnerable communities around the world.
As we journey through Lent and Easter, we're calling on you to rise up against climate change – before it's too late.

Rise up with Lope and Eva
This Lent and Easter, we're standing together with fisherfolk Lope and Eva Dumaguin. How are they rising up to the challenges of life in a changing, erratic climate?
Rise up with Mary Ann
This Lent and Easter, we reflect on fisherwoman Mary Ann Mahinay's story of courage. How does she navigate the wilderness of a changing climate?
Follow the #CountYourBlessings journey on Instagram with our Lent photo challenge
Lent is a time for taking stock and reflecting. People often challenge themselves to give things up for Lent, but this year we’d like to take up the habit of gratitude for the ways in which we’re blessed. Each day we’ll share a challenge, something to take a photo of and share on your Instagram feed, or an invitation to reflect and hear the stories of our sisters and brothers in Kenya and Nigeria. Join in as much or as little as you want, it’s a chance to #CountYourBlessings with others who will come together on this journey of gratitude. Link in bio for more info! We’re so pleased you’re with us.
