Burundi In Crisis Emergency Appeal

 

Dear Friend,

 

I am writing from Burundi with a heavy heart. Across the country, one in every six children under five years of age is now suffering from chronic malnutrition*.

 

The economy is crumbling, sparked by the political crisis, and food prices have rocketed, leading to staggering levels of hunger.

 

Angelique brought her son, David, to one of our partner's temporary feeding centres when he started showing signs of chronic malnutrition. ‘I raise three children alone, and it’s hard,’ she told us, ‘The biggest challenge is providing food for the children.’

 

There seems no end to the suffering I see all around me the situation is critical. But I won’t stop serving the people of Burundi. I refuse to let poverty win. Please join with me in this.

The feeding centres are a true lifeline to thousands of children as well as mums who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and need good nutrition to sustain both themselves and their babies.

 

Your donation today could help us reach so many more vulnerable people in Burundi and neighbouring Rwanda.

 

 

Yours in Christ,
