Ongoing conflict in Western Equatoria, the region of South Sudan where we have been working for years, is forcing families to abandon their homes and farm fields and run for their lives. The few possessions they own are left behind as they flee from the towns of Nagero and Raga to the relative safety of Ezo.

Families arrive in Ezo with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They need food. They need tools to establish small vegetable gardens. They need shelter.

A $50 gift today becomes $200 through a special matching grant made available to help save lives as the crisis deepens in Myanmar.Your gift will help provide the shelter and other assistance families displaced by violence so desperately need right now.

Helping families in the Democratic Republic of Congo double the production of their fish ponds helps them achieve their goal of becoming free from poverty.

Your gift will help help provide higher quality Tilapia fingerlings, vastly improving the productivity of existing ponds. Additional training in the latest fish farming methods will be provided as well, ensuring the sustainability of the fish ponds for years to come. Families will also receive new hand tools to help with pond maintenance and expansion.

Raising small farm animals, like pigs, is a way for families to increase the amount of food and income they have throughout the year, enabling them to become self-reliant.

Your gift of $60 will help ensure that a family receives a female pig, which they will raise and breed to produce piglets. Some of the piglets will be kept and others will be given to families in the village who will begin raising pigs and doing the same. Your gift to a family today will grow to help many more families this year as the pig’s offspring are shared throughout the village. The positive impact of your gift will increase multiple times this year alone.

Not being able to see hasn’t dampened the spirit of men and women with visual disabilities in Sri Lanka. Yet there is one obstacle that they have not been able to overcome – earning a reliable income.

A gift from you will help enable men and women with visual disabilities to start and successfully run small businesses, making products such as bricks, rattan chairs, braided rope, vegetables, and ground flour. The income from their new businesses will enable people with visual disabilities to lift themselves out of poverty.
