Drought Aid Opens Door to Share the Gospel - We need YOU!

Food insecurity is still a serious threat to families in the areas affected by the drought. Food insecurity from both the natural phenomena of drought-related climate change as well as human failures is a result of poor and backward farming practices. These factors have been major contributors to the threat of the livelihoods of many.Tackling these natural and human-related threats through training remains pivotal. Sustainable farming remains the solution against the backdrop of a rising global population.

Kits and other training equipment for sustainable gardening as well as food preservation are key to achieving the desired goals, noting also that the two compliment each other.

Help us continue to make an impact in the lives that are suffering in Zimbabwe.
