Story

Jessica, a loving mum in Zimbabwe, fears her family won't eat tonight.

When food is scarce, she can only give her children one bowl of porridge a day. It breaks her heart to send them to bed hungry.

Now, for the first time in a generation, global poverty is rising. Covid-19, conflict, and the climate crisis are pushing more of our global neighbours into a struggle for survival. For Jessica, drought means every day is a struggle for survival. Like many women in Zimbabwe, she toils on her farm, but no food can grow on her ashen dry land.

One year, we had no rain. The scorching sun burnt my crops just as they were about to bloom. It was so painful and disheartening.

Once before, when things were desperate, Jessica asked her neighbours for food. But she came home with nothing. Jessica is hungry. Hungry for a good meal. Hungry to earn a decent living. Hungry to provide a more hopeful future for her family.

This Christian Aid Week your gifts could transform lives. Your fundraising could help Jessica grow drought-resistant crops. You could help her set up water taps on her farm and learn how to grow food in the harsh climate. She'll turn her dry, dusty land into a garden of hope.

We won't stop until everyone can live a full life, free from hunger. Will you join us?
