When soldiers descend on your village, threatening your life unless you leave, you only have one decision to make. You take your family, and you run. When an earthquake or a hurricane destroys everything you own, it’s nearly impossible to know how to move forward.

And when the rains you have relied on for generations no longer fall as they used to, the crops you rely on to feed your family may fail.

And then, when a pandemic hits, how do you cope?

 

Whether you are running from conflict, devastated by disaster, or crippled by drought, having enough food is essential.

Yet, for millions in the world, food has become a luxury. One in ten people in the world wake up without knowing where their next meal might come from.

And experts are predicting that the number of people experiencing food crises in the world may double because of COVID-19. We are deeply concerned by this, and have committed ourselves to helping change this reality.

It’s for this reason that our local partners are working hard in countries around the world to provide food to those who are hungry.

Today, we are facing unprecedented circumstances and we are asking for your help. We need to do more. In light of the devastating impacts that COVID-19 is having around the world, we commit to ensuring that some of the most vulnerable families have food on their tables.

Your gift today to provide food, matched up to 4X through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, will ensure that families have enough to eat through this crisis. In some places, like Colombia, World Renew partners are able to provide cash cards that can be used to purchase food from local markets. Since these cards hold cash electronically, no physical distributions are necessary, meaning that this essential assistance can continue.

Additionally, because of the difficult economic circumstances caused by COVID-19, these cards are providing an economic boost to local vendors. In other places, like Lebanon, a combination of food vouchers for use in local stores, and supplemental food delivery is helping families through this time of increased food insecurity.

Will you join us in helping families who, because of conflict, natural disaster, and drought, do not have enough to eat?
