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

This autumn will you 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.

Mercy Akinyi battles every day to feed her two young children

Mercy and her babyLike every mother, Mercy Akinyi wants the best for her children. Living in one of the poorest parts of Kenya, every day is a battle to feed her two young children.

It’s a hard job, made even more difficult by the fact she cares for her disabled mother, as well as her children, alone.

Your gift can empower mothers like Mercy.

By donating to the Mother & Child appeal you will give mothers and families the confidence and knowledge to grow the food they need.

In time, they’ll grow a surplus which they can sell, providing a vital income to support their family.

Together we can help mothers nourish their family so their children can flourish.
