The focus for Christian Aid Week this year is Malawi,

Recently Cyclone Freddy hit Malawi and Mozambique. Malawi experienced a year’s worth of rain during the 4-week cyclone and the number of people affected continues to rise. Over 508,000 people are displaced and hundreds have lost their lives. There's also an increased risk of malaria and cholera in the immediate aftermath.

A local partner organisation is helping farmers to reduce vulnerability to climate change by sowing pigeon peas, a drought resistant, high protein crop.

Jen has two sons who have both earned places at top colleges but can she afford to send them both? She and her husband have two acres of pigeon peas, but they are struggling with the effects of the climate crisis - unreliable rainfall and more storms, flooding and stronger winds.

No mum should have the heart-breaking choice of which child to educate and which one will miss out on their dreams. 

With your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. We won’t stop until everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.
