Christian Aid is celebrating 75 years of helping to give people an equal chance in an increasingly unequal world. This year’s focus is on the climate crisis. People living in poverty are affected by drought and flooding. Climate change robs people of control over their lives. Gifts this year will be used to help communities build an earth dam, to collect the rain and provide a reliable source of water to help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.
When Rose was a young girl, there was plenty of food. The climate crisis has caused extreme weather and Rose’s community live with drought for months at a time. Rose worries a lot about food and prays to God that the rainfall will become normal like it used to be.
Florence is courageous, kind and a survivor. Following the death of her husband, she had no water to grow crops and her children were hungry. She had to walk for hours on a dangerous journey to collect water.
Thanks to Christian Aid Week donations and with the help of CA partner ADSE, Florence and her community have built a dam just a short walk away from her village. The dam provides a reliable water source, during long droughts or relentless rainstorms.
Florence can now grow tomatoes, onions, papayas and chillies and keep honey bees. Her children can eat healthy, nutritious vegetables. The dam is her source of life and joy.
