Africa

With your help, we worked in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Our partnership in compassion supported 17 programs and reached 45,506 girls and women across the region. Women like Priscilla from Zimbabwe, who with your support, was able to sell her crops and start poultry farming, selling eggs to grow her income stream and helping pay for her grandchildren’s  education.

Our partner Caritas Hwange also helped rehabilitate the dip tank in her community so that Priscilla’s cattle can be healthy and free from tick-borne diseases.
