Flooding & Crisis Appeal

Flooding & Crisis Appeal

Lake Tanganyika has risen by twelve feet, displacing 230,000 people, many of whom are utterly destitute. Food prices have risen by about 40% over the past year and there continues to be a shortages of fuel, with people queuing hours, or even days to fill up.

Our partners are under such intense pressure, and yet are doing stunning work despite the challenges. But they’re struggling to feed their own families, let alone help others.

We want to increase their support allowances so their staff (and their families) can continue to be provided for, and their ministries can continue to thrive in this, the most difficult of seasons.

Could you help by pledging £20/month (or any smaller or bigger sum)? We even managed to secure matched funding* that doubles each new (or increased) monthly support for the first year, so your £20 becomes £40 etc.

*We’ve got match funding of £50,000 for monthly giving. That means that first 12 months of donations will be doubled.
