Will you partner with Barnabas Fund to feed poor and persecuted African Christians? Just 23p ($0.30; €0.25) a day will keep a family alive.
What can you buy for 23p ($0.30; €0.25)? A bread roll? A large onion?
Ground maize (often called “mielie meal”) is the staple food for most of sub-Saharan Africa. A 25kg sack – typical cost £7 ($9; €8) – will enable a family of five to survive for a month. That is just 23p ($0.30; €0.25) a day.

The economic catastrophe of lockdown has brought a very real and ongoing threat of starvation – and not just in countries where food insecurity is sadly familiar. Kwashiorkor symptoms, such as a swollen belly, are appearing amongst children and even adults in Swaziland, where the disease has been unknown for many years.
