ChildFund ambassador, Danielle Cormack, recently took a trip to Africa to discover more about the work we'd been doing in the communities there, and to meet the child she'd sponsored for 13 years.
Part of the trip involved Danielle visiting drought-stricken Kenya, where she witnessed the impact climate change had been having on the communities there first-hand.
Danielle spoke with members of the community about the change in weather, with some telling stories of their youth with lots of rain, wild animals and wild fruits. Droughts came around every ten years, where as now they happen so often it's much more difficult to recover.
The Weekend Herald recently published an article about Danielle's trip and why action against climate change is so important. You can view the article here.
Action against climate change
Danielle's trip to drought-ridden Kenya is just one of the stories from vulnerable communities being impacted by climate change, unfortunately there are many more. From storms on the Pacific Islands to flooding in Sri Lanka, extreme weather is having a devastating impact around the world.
That's why we're calling for action against climate change, along with 13 other NGOs as part of our Back the Plan, Back to Zero campaign.
