report Baptist World Aid

Baptist World Aid has reissued its appeal to assist those suffering from the drought in Southern Africa.

  • Our people are forced to eat roots and leaves.

  • Mothers are being forced to scrabble in the dirt to find roots, and pluck any leaves from the trees, to find some way of feeding their children!

  • Maize is being eaten green from the stalk, meaning that it has gone by harvest time!

  • Women will trade anything to get food for their families, including their bodies.
