Christian Aid Week 2023: 14-20 May 2023
Your gifts this Christian Aid Week could help farmers in Malawi plant better seeds, secure a fairer price for the crops, and build happier futures for their children.
Families in Malawi are paying the price of this global crisis.
Food, fuel, fertiliser and school fees have doubled in price in the last 12 months. And hard-working farmers are seeing their harvests fail as the climate crisis brings increasingly erratic weather.
Your support this Christian Aid week will help create long-term change for people living in poverty. Watch our new thank you film featuring Jen in Malawi who shares the impact of Cyclone Freddy and why your Christian Aid Week donations and fundraising are so important.
The impact of the recent Cyclone Freddy in Malawi has been devastating. Floods have washed away crops, over 500,000 people have been displaced and hundreds have lost their lives.
Christian Aid Week is at its most powerful when a disaster happens. Through you, we will be there long after the flood waters recede, helping families build back. Your gifts this May will continue to support the pigeon pea project and other vital work around the world.
We won’t stop until everyone has the chance to live a full life, free from poverty. We are united in hope that, with your help, more young people will be able to transform their lives.
Jen, a loving mum in Malawi, dreams of her children being able to have the education they deserve. Her hard-working boys have earned places at top colleges – but Jen cannot afford to send them both.
Read her story, and learn how your gifts could help farmers like Jen plant better seeds, secure a fairer price for the crops, and build happier futures for their children.
Softly-spoken Esther Saizi radiates joy and warmth.
Esther grows some truly special pigeon peas on her farm - with them she can bake delicious bread, support her daughter’s dreams, and give her adorable little grandsons a happy future, full of love and laughter.
But she wasn't always able to support her family so easily.
