You can make a difference today. A gift of £27 will provide 3 boxes of seedlings for a family like Asja's living in desperate poverty, providing them with essential food to survive now and the opportunity to become more self-sufficient.
If you were able to make a special gift of £53 this will cover the costs of agricultural tools such as hoes and rakes, boxes of seedlings, maintenance of our Greenhouse in Victoria, Romania and the support and training of 50 people in practical agricultural skills for one week.
Each box will be carefully packed and contain vegetable seeds for crops such as salad, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, peppers and peas. All the family contribute and work so hard on the land, tilling, planting and harvesting. With support from the Mission as well as partnerships we have with local churches, the family hope to grow enough for themselves and to make their own living selling the produce in the local market.
“We went through a really difficult time financially especially during the Pandemic," said Asja's mother, Sedina. “We are grateful for the Mission's help – I don't know how we would have succeeded in anything without you.”
Bosnia-Herzegovina is one of the poorest countries in Europe. For many families living in rural areas what they plant in the ground is not just their main source of income, but vital for survival. The difficulty is that people lack proper technology and good quality seeds to obtain good crops.
With your help we can provide cared for seedlings, tools and training in order to help people improve their methods of growing crops as well as their well-being, nutrition and health.
This Easter Mission our target is to help 300 families like the Zahirovics with home grown vegetables, packing and distributing boxes of seeds.
Any funds raised over and above our target will be used where most urgently needed to benefit children and families in Eastern Europe supported by MWB.
Thank you for your gift.
