£4 can Shine a Light and buy clean water, food and shelter via the Mothers’ Union Relief Fund. In 2012, South Sudan had floods which led to massive loss of homes and crops. Mothers’ Union members on the ground are able to identify those worse affected
£15 can help someone learn to write their name with the Mothers’ Union Worldwide literacy programme
£19 can go towards training parenting facilitators in the UK and worldwide and help bring families together
£100 can help to train people in prenatal and post natal care and lower the maternal mortality rate in countries such as Zambia
