Ethiopian Emergency Feeding Program from Tearfund Canada

The Borena region of Southern Ethiopia has faced three consecutive years of drought and currently over a million people face severe food shortages. VMC’s partner, Tearfund Canada, is responding by distributing over 1 million kilograms of food at a cost of $2.2 million.

Will your church consider taking up a special offering this month, or making this a Christmas or Year-end giving project?

Tearfund is asking Canadian churches and congregations to respond by donating $400,000 towards this crisis need. Every dollar donated will be matched 4:1 through a generous grant by Foodgrains Bank and the Government of Canada.

Tearfund has a webpage with practical resources to share this need with your church:

Pray for this often forgotten region of the world and especially the most vulnerable, infants and mothers, as they desperately need food and water.

Donations can be made via Tearfund’s website
