Church World Service (CWS) works with communities to overcome the root causes of hunger. Access to land to grow food is essential for both indigenous communities long denied right to their ancestral lands as well as to the women smallholder farmers who grow the vast majority of food consumed around the globe. Ensuring proper nutrition in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life is key to their healthy growth and realizing their full potential later in life. CWS works with communities to find ways to feed themselves sustainably and nutritiously.
CWS has worked for seven decades with one goal: building a world where there is enough for all. We affirm the power of individuals and communities to take ownership of their future. We meet them right where they are, helping them create solutions they can maintain – and build on. That means a refugee family who is able to start a new life. Or someone rebuilding after disaster finds safety with dignity. It means that everyone has enough to eat. #Enough4All
Please join me in meeting my $2500 birthday goal in support of this worthy cause. As a member of the CWS Board of Directors (CWSGlobal.org), I can personally assure you that your help WILL have great impact in this fight and be put to maximum use. In the past year alone, we have made a difference in tens of thousands of lives in more than 30 countries, including this one. Thank you!
