Give the gift of a starter pack containing crop seeds to a farmer in Zimbabwe to help them become self-sufficient and support their family.

“We now have much better crops and excess produce to sell and help us look after our families.” - Shami, Zimbabwe.

Many people in Zimbabwe don’t have enough water to grow their crops. To make things worse, failing rains mean that rural farming communities are unable to produce enough food. Many families now have to depend on unreliable supplies of food aid, and face the prospect of severe food shortages.

Your gift of $30 will provide farmers with a starter pack of drought-resistant seeds. At the same time, our partners will train farmers in new ways of keeping their soil moist and protecting it from erosion. Farmers will learn how to manage their crops and land effectively, even when rainfall is scarce. This means they will be able to grow more food for their families, without having to rely on handouts.

More ways to take action

Help keep families at risk from landslides safe by providing training in disaster risk reduction in schools. Training helps children to identify risks and warning signs of landslides, and teaches them how to keep safe if one happens.

Take the Act for Peace Ration Challenge and eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week (19-26 June 2016). Raise money to support refugees who have lost everything, and challenge perspectives – including your own.

Right now, thousands of innocent people are fleeing Syria every day to protect their families from bloodshed, violence and death. We need your support to provide emergency relief packs to the families fleeing in Syria.
