Take up the Live Below the Line challenge and raise money for our Burundi campaign. Burundi is the hungriest country in the world. Families here have been living on much less for a lifetime. Hunger ultimately means loss of life - and of all hope for any kind of meaningful future. Send a Cow: Burundi With the money you raise we can start to end hunger in the country one family, one community at a time. It raise means we can get into the heart of these communities and, within months, see them growing enough food to feed their families. For every £100 you raise we will support a group to set up an allotment to grow fruit and veg to feed their families and sell. And for every person helped, a further 9 benefit, spreading the impact of the money you raise still further. Crucially, your support will mean people feel valued, not forgotten. This is the spark. When a person feels valued they believe they can take the livestock and the knowledge we provide and shape their own future. It starts with an appetite for change. We simply provide the means to make that happen. Will you help us?
