Harvesting hope in Zimbabwe
Hope is scarce for mothers like Nyevero, who couldn’t feed her family after losing her crops to Zimbabwe’s merciless drought. Most days, she and her husband, teenage son and two young daughters had just one thin bowl of porridge to survive on. Nyevero felt desperate as she watched her children get sicker and weaker. She wanted to give them a good education, but they were too hungry to go to school.
Through your support of the Christmas Bowl, Nyevero found hope at the most desolate time. She became a conservation farmer, learning to raise healthy crops, gain new sources of income, and transform her family’s life. Your kindness helps women like Nyevero to farm through the leanest seasons, so they can lift their children out of hunger and poverty and give them hope for the future.
