Be their partner in recovery, their partner in compassion

In the face of adversity - of conflict, of hunger, of disease, of crisis, or natural disaster - people do not lose their capability. They lose their resources, their connections, their voice and their ability to create meaningful, enduring change for themselves. You can be there for these people, standing alongside them in empathy and understanding, putting your compassion into action by helping provide access to what they have lost, helping them build a better future.

You can be a partner in their solution. A partner in compassion.

Priscilla's Story

Climate change continues to bring unprecedented challenges for people living in the most vulnerable and remote communities in Zimbabwe. Priscilla learnt conservation farming skills to grow drought-resistant crops and started poultry farming to support her family during the current food crisis.
