ECG: Solid Ground = Secure Futures
Please help farming families like Belyu’s
Solid ground seems like a faraway concept in the mountainous areas of rural Ethiopia. Here, farmers are working hard on a land, which shifts day to day. When the rains come, the top soil (the good soil) is washed down into the valleys and year on year the land produces less crops. That’s less food for families, less nutritious diets for children and inevitably, worsening health conditions and an increase in premature deaths. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There is hope.
All We Can helps farmers get more from their land through building natural barriers, including planting indigenous trees, to make the ground more solid. They also provide farmers with better tools and train them in modern and improved ways of farming. On top of this, they give a variety of seeds for farmers to plant, which better suits the challenging environment. All of these practical acts of love are ensuring families get the food they need, children benefit from nutritious diets and sicknesses are reduced.
Ethiopian farmer Belyu says, “If this support was not provided to me and my family, it would be very, very difficult for us. But thanks to All We Can’s support I am now able to feed my children.”
Please give what you can to help families like Belyu’s to overcome the challenges of poverty and to fulfil their God-given potential.
