Burundi Emergency Appeal: The Need Is Still Great


Dear Friend,


Gordien had walked for an hour and a half, up and down steep hills, carrying his two-year-old daughter on his back. He arrived at our partner’s temporary feeding centre in Songa, to discover his daughter was suffering from malnutrition, like so many in Burundi. Across the country, one in every six children under five years of age is now suffering from chronic malnutrition*.


For parents like Gordien, our feeding centres are a ray of hope in a dark and turbulent time.


Tearfund partner staff identify children, like Donate, who are in the most need, and they measure them for signs of malnutrition. Parents receive training on how to prepare nutritious porridge and are shown good hygiene practices that can protect their families from disease.


If you would like to make a gift to this important work <https://tearfund.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=cd19eb0b2a74af14054950f15&id=0e5b8adeaa&e=b67d6b82a4> today, your support could help us to reach many more vulnerable people. Please remember these people in Burundi and neighbouring Rwanda in your prayers at this critical time.


Yours in Christ,


Desire Majambere

Burundi Programme Manager



Money raised will help those most vulnerable in Burundi, and in neighbouring Rwanda.
