CHRISTIAN AID WEEK: 15 – 21 MAY 2022 Funds raised during Christian Aid week this year will help people to adjust to the impact of climate change in rural Africa, particularly focusing on Zimbabwe. Like many farmers in rural Zimbabwe, Jessica struggles to grow anything on her drought-stricken land. With money that we raise this Christian Aid week, Jessica could access seed stocks that will enable her to grow drought-resistant crops, get funding to set up water taps on her farm, and learn new techniques to grow food in the harsh climate. Her dry land could transform into an abundance of fresh food like tomatoes and beans, giving her and her children hope for the future. Please look out for a Christian Aid envelope arriving through your letterbox this Christian Aid week, and please give generously. Or you can type in https://envelope.christianaid.org.uk/envelope/ryed
