Christain Aid helps in long term development projects in 29 different countries .

This year we   will be learning about  'pigeon pea'  project with farmers in Malawi.

They are growing a crop they hope will  withstand  the violent weather  which climate change is forcing on them.

 Christain Aid  also provides emergency funds provide an instant response to crises  such as natural disasters ,

(eg hurricane Freddy in Malawi, the Turkey Syria earthquake ) and human made  catastrophes  such as the Ukraine war.. 

by providing  immediate  food and shelter  and medical care.
