Giving Tuesday 2022
Hunger Crisis in South Ethiopia
A mother prays for her dying child. She has watched the sun scorch the land, the shallow river dry to hard crust, the precious cattle lie dead.
As we get out of the car, the smell of decay stings the nostrils. Then we see the cause… a whole herd of cattle lie dead on the dusty ground. “It’s like they all just died at the same time,” our local partner says.
We see massive pits where villagers have buried their dead cattle. Some families have removed the thatch off their roofs to give to their cows in an effort to keep them alive. But it’s no use.
Dozens of vultures wait 20-30 yards off. They know it won’t be long.
Over a million people in South Ethiopia are at risk of starvation. After an unprecedented three years of drought, the situation has become desperate. Your gift today will rush emergency food to families who need it most.
Your gift today will rush emergency food to hungry children and their families.
You’ll provide a supplement called Famix to mothers and children—a quick and effective way to provide the necessary calories and nutrients they need to survive.
Additionally, your donation will provide food kits to 13,000 families. Every month, each person will receive:
- 15 kg of maize
- 5 kg of kidney beans
- 0.5L of vegetable oil
Providing enough calories to keep them alive.
As a Christian organization, we follow Jesus where the need is greatest. Helping everyone who need it. We know that no matter how hopeless the situation may seem, our God is stronger.
On Giving Tuesday, unleash greater impact.
The total cost of this life-saving project is $2.2 million; out of which $1.8 million is already committed. We need to raise the next $400,000 with the help of people like you.
That means every $1 you donate you will be helping to implement $5 to help feed starving families.
Don’t delay. Your gift today could mean the difference between life and death.
