Being a mother is a tough job, especially when you live in one of the poorest regions in Africa.

This Christmas will you and your church support mothers across east Africa so they can give their children the best start in life? In sub-Saharan Africa, one in three children are stunted as a result of poor nutrition.

That’s why we've launched our biggest ever appeal. Together we will give mothers the skills and tools to grow their own food to feed their families.

And the UK Government will match every pound raised in the appeal until 31 December 2017 – so your money will have double the impact!

Download our free Christmas resources to support your church fundraising. There's something for everyone, including a session outline for youth groups.
