The recent record-breaking heatwave in the UK was a reminder of the reality of the climate crisis. It was also a small insight into what vulnerable communities are facing on a daily basis as they struggle to adapt. Tearfund’s recent research report, Dying to Adapt, suggests that some of the world’s poorest countries are facing the highest costs to adapt to climate change. This risks funds being diverted from crucial public services like healthcare and millions of people being pushed even further into poverty. 
This is not God’s plan. But there are ways that you can pray, speak up, and take action to protect people and the planet. You could do something practical in your local area, like our team in Pakistan who recently led a community beach clean up for World Oceans Day. 

Or you could take on a fundraising challenge, like our supporter Kim Gilbert who has just completed her epic walk from Land’s End to John o’Groats. If you’re inspired to take on your own fundraiser this summer, we’ve got loads of tips and ideas to help you get started.
 
With every blessing,

African countries paying the price of the climate crisis

People living in poverty are suffering some of the worst effects of the climate crisis – despite the fact they have done the least to cause it. They are grappling with drought, hunger, and extreme weather events that are destroying their homes and livelihoods. And now, their vital public services are at risk.

Turning the tide on waste

To mark World Oceans Day, Tearfund’s team in Pakistan organised a beach clean up to raise awareness of the importance of caring for the environment while bringing the community together and making a practical difference. Could you organise a litter pick in your neighbourhood??


Could you be our next fundraising hero?

Our wonderful supporter, Kim Gilbert, has completed the incredible challenge of walking from Land’s End to John o’Groats. She walked more than 1,200 miles over 102 days and raised £7,500 (and counting) for Tearfund in the process! Inspired to take on your own challenge? Discover how you can play a part in transforming the lives of people living in poverty.

You are helping make Open the Book a remarkably fruitful outreach in England and Wales. More than half a million children are not just hearing, but experiencing, Bible stories as Open the Book teams regularly bring interactive performances to their schools. As Open the Book expands around the world, teams in other countries have created a new opportunity for people in England and Wales to partner with them. As a team, group or organisation (or even as a generous individual) you can now sponsor an Open the Book project overseas.
Ruby, Janeviva and Anne share the vision for Open the Book in their countries. They explain how people passionate about the Bible can equip a team of volunteers like theirs for a year of engaging storytelling encounters in schools

Open the Book is especially impactful because of its interactivity. Children get a deep experience of Scripture that’s sure to be a positive influence on their lives into adulthood.

Reasons to believe in the power of the Bible

School has been a cause of stress for me, meeting deadlines and doing exams. I feel the stress in my stomach. I feel dread that something is going to come, some sort of punishment. It used to stop me sleeping. ‘The pandemic has definitely been weird. It’s been much harder to work from home because that’s the place where you relax. ‘But, during the pandemic I read Ecclesiastes. It’s about a man who says that life is useless. I found it useful, because it made me see that God is in control and that he knows everything that will be, so you should be able to go with what’s happening. ‘So, if I get any anxiety, I remind myself that he is in control and then I can leave things in his control.......  READ MORE
