Harvest of Hope

We need your help to raise a harvest of hope and make lasting change for some of the hungriest people around the world this fall.

The COVID-19 crisis is the greatest global health threat of our lifetime. Almost every person on the face of the earth has had their lives disrupted in one way or another. As Coronavirus continues to affect countries around the globe, one of the most impacted areas is food security. Many regions of the world are facing severely depleted food stores, and supply chains continue to be interrupted.

As in any crisis it’s the poor who are most impacted and can least afford help. 

 

THE CHALLENGE

Before Coronavirus, there were 690 million severely food insecure people in the world.1 Over the last several years, issues caused by weather, disease, conflict, pests, and socio-economic challenges have contributed to an increase in the number of food insecure people in the world. In countries the World Food Program serves, they anticipate an 82 percent increase2 in the number of people who could be pushed into food insecurity because of these factors along with Coronavirus. As time has moved on, this crisis has changed and so has our response. We’ve turned our attention and focus to work with others to address these growing concerns.

Thank you for helping those who need it the most. You have made it possible to lead a major awareness and training campaign for health and wellness – teaching communities about social distancing, sharing hygiene kits, making soap and masks, and setting up hand-washing stations.

Because of this food crisis, communities are asking for urgent help; many without economic means or access to food. To address this challenging outlook for the world’s hungry, we are asking you to join us today in funding food security response and training and resources to help with long-term food production to as many villages as possible.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

As we enter this harvest season, would you consider making a gift to bring hope to a community and the hope of food security for themselves and their families?

Each community will need up to $2,000 for training and resources like seeds and emergency food supplies. We know many of you have been affected by changes happening during coronavirus. In spite of the uncertainty we are surrounded by – we find that giving restores joy and alleviates fear.

As you are able, would you consider helping to reach just one more community with food and lifesaving training on Coronavirus? These rural villages, where most people who are subject to extreme poverty live today, are the most vulnerable communities to COVID-19.
