Join our Lent Appeal
This Lent, your generosity will give vital support to the communities we work with around the world.
Mahinur, her disabled husband and 12-year-old son, are an example of a family that we hope to reach thanks to the Lent appeal. Mahinur’s family live in Bangladesh, where floods, droughts, and cyclones have damaged crops, homes, health and income.
Mahinur usually catches fish to sell but last year a drought dried up the local river and all the fish died. The water has returned, but the fish haven’t. Mahinur told us: “There should be fish in the river now. It's the right time of year. But there's nothing.”
Mahinur cooks and cleans in neighbours’ homes for a bit of cash but it’s never enough. There are days the family have nothing to eat.
Our local expert, Jamal, has already helped a few families in Mahinur’s village - teaching them new farming techniques, and distributing seeds, ducks and chickens. But sadly, there hasn’t been enough money available to help Mahinur.
You can change this today by supporting our Lent appeal and enable us to reach out to more families in desperate need of help.
