The global food system is in crisis
When a farmer like Marshall is starving, you know the global food system has reached crisis point. Unable to grow enough food to feed his family, Marshall, along with his wife and three children, was pushed into deep hunger and poverty.
But Marshall is not alone. Thousands more families are poor, starving and in urgent need of our help. Please make a donation of £20 today to help us train more farmers in sustainable and affordable farming methods, so they can grow enough food to feed their families.
Agricultural policies which favour large-scale farming and big business are making it impossible for small-scale farmers like Marshall to survive. Giant food companies such as Nestlé have continued to make billions in profits even as record numbers of people go hungry.
War on Want is fighting for a new farming system. To help farmers like Marshall escape poverty and hunger, we are training poor communities in farming methods which are sustainable and inexpensive, such as mixed-cropping, organic farming and seed cultivation.
The ultimate aim is to see sustainable organic farming spread throughout Sri Lanka. Tens of thousands of families have already received training and their lives have been transformed. With your support, we can help many more.
Please make a donation today to help communities receive training in sustainable farming methods which will enable them to feed their families today, tomorrow and into the future.
