Being a mother is a tough job, especially when you live in one of the poorest regions in Africa.
This autumn will you support mothers across east Africa so they can give their children the best start in life? In sub-Saharan Africa, one in three children are stunted as a result of poor nutrition.
That’s why we've launched our biggest ever appeal. Together we will give mothers the skills and tools to grow their own food to feed their families.
And the UK Government will match every pound raised in the appeal until 31 December 2017 – so your support will have double the impact!*
Mercy Akinyi battles every day to feed her two young children. Like every mother, Mercy Akinyi wants the best for her children. Living in one of the poorest parts of Kenya, every day is a battle to feed her two young children.
It’s a hard job, made even more difficult by the fact she cares for her disabled mother, as well as her children, alone.
