WEE BOX 2022
Across the world, extreme weather is flooding homes, destroying crops and leaving people with little or no food to eat. More than 800 million people go hungry each day.
In January, this reality was clearer than ever as Cyclone Ana hit Malawi and caused widespread devastation, affecting almost one million people and killing 46. Crops and animals were washed away in an instant, destroying livelihoods.
That's why this Lent your love and generosity will prevent families from going hungry, help people grow more food, and heal their local environment. Their need is urgent: please respond in love.

to help families in Malawi affected by climate change.
we can fight the devastating hunger this causes.
and we can build God's kingdom here on Earth.
Every day Julius lives in hunger. Every day his family lives on the edge of survival.
Without warning, the rain Julius relies on to water his crops can fall all at once. Then the rains can stop suddenly. His crops dry up, wither and die – they have no harvest.
Julius doesn’t know when his family’s next meal might be.
When you are growing food for your family every person lives on optimism. But now, my household – and many others in the village – are facing hunger.Julius
Showing your love for our neighbours with a gift in your WEE BOX could be the Act of Hope that families like Julius’ desperately need this Lent. The unpredictability of a changing climate makes life for Julius and his family exhausting, locking them in a never-ending cycle of poverty.
Donate today and provide food and hope for families on the front line of the Climate Emergency who are hungry and facing life on the edge of survival.
