Zimbabwe is facing a life-threatening food crisis. UN officials state the country is on the brink of starvation. More than half of the population has litte or no access to food. 90% of children under 2 are below weight and do not have enough to eat. Urgent action is needed now to save lives.

Once known as the breadbasket of Africa, exporting produce to other parts of the world, Zimbabwe has faced extreme drought. In many areas of the country seeds have not sprouted due to lack of rain and dry weather. Food shortages have driven up an already inflated economy. ReliefWeb reported, " Bread now costs 20 times what it cost six months ago, while the price of maize has nearly tripled over the same period." For many families, these increases are impossible to sustain.

We can help.

Your donation of $150 will feed a family for six months. $25 will feed a family for one month. All donations will make a difference during this crisis.

ERDO and our local partners will provide each member of a family with a monthly food basket including:

10 kg of ground maize,

2 kg of beans,

and 1 L of fortified cooking oil.

Your donation will be matched 4x by the Canadian government through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. That means, $1 becomes $5. Donate today and stretch your impact, saving lives.

Thank you for expressing love and compassion to children in Zimbabwe!
