Life-Giving Bottles Harvest Appeal 2017

Churches across the UK joined together to support communities devastated by drought. Whether your church held a collection on the day or filled your life-giving bottles with change in the run up to your harvest festival – thank you!

Pay in your collection today and help ensure families don’t face another dry season without food.

The worst drought in 35 years hit southern Africa last year. As water became scarce, families struggled to find enough to drink. Crops withered, cattle died and food stores emptied. Around half a million people were left malnourished and hungry.

Communities in southern Zambia were some of the worst affected. As weather around the world becomes more unpredictable, here it causes longer droughts and more intense flooding. Climate change is water change, and the effects are devastating.

But thanks to support from churches like yours, we will be able to bring clean water to communities around the world devastated by drought.
