Our 2023 Christmas appeal

This Christmas, you could also make an enormous difference by supporting our Christmas appeal to help women grow a future without violence.

The global economic crisis is affecting us all this winter. In the poorest countries around the world, it’s pushing millions of people into acute hunger and poverty, as the costs of everyday essentials soar.

But there is hope. In these communities, women and girls are finding innovative solutions to the hunger crisis, so they can feed their families in a more sustainable way, long into the future.  

If you give a gift to our Christmas appeal today, you can make an investment in transformative projects. For example, women who are adopting climate-resilient farming methods, or setting up community seed banks.  

You can support women to grow a future without hunger.
