Many of us find fasting for medical tests hard—imagine going hungry all the time. Most of us can’t. But for three quarters of people around the world, hunger is a painful, daily reality.And it’s about to get worse.The latest figures from the United Nations predict that more than 250,000,000 people will suffer from severe hunger by the end of the year because of COVID-19.That’s more than double the number of people who are suffering now.Usually, hunger is the result of conflict, the effects of climate change, and economic instability. People living in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean suffer most.But now COVID-19 has made an already dire situation even more brutal.That’s why in addition to helping with sanitation and personal protective equipment, the United Church is working hard to combat hunger worsened by this crisis.You can help. Make a gift to the United Church’s COVID-19 Global Response appeal and help save lives.Every gift will make a difference to those suffering most.
We work in partnership with proven organizations like ACT Alliance, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, and Mission & Service partners to make sure that your support goes directly to those who need it. That means that every dollar you give does the maximum good.
We may be social distancing and isolating, but God’s love doesn’t have to stay home. Your gift wraps the world with compassion, transforming and saving lives across the globe.
Thank you for your generosity. Your caring makes a world of difference.
