How your gift helps

Your purchase of this gift empowers Tearfund’s partners’ work around food and livelihoods. Your generosity helps change lives, thank you!

Hundreds of families in southern Mozambique are enjoying nourishing meals from their own patch, with enough produce left so that they can also sell some to generate an income. Tearfund’s local partner, the Christian Network Against HIV and Aids in Mozambique (RCHS), provides farmers with seeds and tools, as well as training in a method of farming called conservation agriculture which leads to improved soil and better yields.

Joana, one of the farmers involved in the project, says: “With what I learned, I am now able to buy crockery for my house, my children eat well every day and I do business with the produce from my field of production.”
