Help victims of climate change
There has been no rainfall in Southern Africa and crops are failing. The snow on the mountains in Tajikistan, which locals melt to provide drinking and irrigation water, keeps decreasing. The climate change is making it increasingly difficult for already poor people to feed their families without help. Your donation provides urgent food aid for those who are most vulnerable.

RUNNING JOY FOR CHILDREN
Hospital clowns go from ward to ward, spreading joy to small patients. The visit helps children get their minds off their illness, and allows them to laugh and have a moment of fun in the middle of the daily life at a hospital. Join us and bring joy to the children in hospital!
