Rose's Story

The climate crisis is leaving people hungry, homeless and heartbroken.

People like Rose are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water. From drought to flooding, climate chaos robs people of control over their lives.

I often feel hungry, Rose says. Because of climate change, I worry a lot about food. I pray to God that the rainfall will become normal like it used to be.

In recent years, the drought has been so bad that its caused a hunger crisis. Crops wither and die. Rivers run dry. People struggle to survive. The coronavirus pandemic has only made this lack of water more critical for Rose. Without water for handwashing, it is a struggle to stay safe from the virus. But with your support, our partner Anglican Development Services Eastern (ADSE) are working to provide reliable water source, supporting people like Rose to withstand even the most unpredictable weather.

This CAW with every gift and every fundraiser you will help support vital work with some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities in the world. Together we stop this climate crisis.
