'The Good News To A Hungry Person Is Bread'
We work on projects that lift people out of poverty all over the world.
Sometimes it’s the little things, like making sure children have solar lamps under which they can do their homework in an evening. Other times it’s the big things like having the back of an impassioned advocacy group whose rights are being trampled on.
Other times we must put our hands in the air and ask for money so we can feed desperate people. This isn’t work that will change the world. But it would mean the world to those who are hungry.
As Desmond Tutu once said,
"The good news to a hungry person is bread”
Well, it’s happening again, and we’re here again, ready to respond.
South Sudan is suffering an unthinkable famine. Families are struggling to live on what meagre food they can find. Harvests have failed due to drought since Sept 2016 and 3 years of civil war has left millions homeless and without support.
But it’s not the end of the story. There’s always hope.
This Christmas, we’re asking for a gift of £10. What’s that, a Christmas pudding? £10 can feed a family for a week.
But there’s a bonus this year. For every £1 you donate to our South Sudan appeal the UK Government will match it. So £10 is worth £20.
One day, these people will be stepping forward to build their lives again. We’ll still be here if they need our help. But until then, help us feed them this Christmas.
