When you set a place at your table, you’ll keep a hungry child alive
Your gift this Christmas will give urgent therapeutic food and medical treatment to keep a child like Abdi alive, and save him from hunger and disease that can be deadly.
Just as drought swept across East Africa, shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic hampered emergency efforts, pushing 8 million people into hunger.
Children like Abdi are in the greatest danger. When he arrived at our Health Centre he was deteriorating so fast, he wasn’t able to eat anymore. Thankfully he responded well to emergency food and care - putting on over half a kilogram in one week!
Sadly, for many of us this year, there’ll be someone special missing from our festive table. Through your gift you can set a symbolic extra ‘place at your table’ - a generous space for someone less fortunate, like little Abdi - in the spirit of loved ones missing from our table.
Will you help stop a child dying from hunger?
