MISSION CAPSULES: Today, 800 million people worldwide go to bed with an empty stomach. The majority of the world’s hungry people are subsistence farmers. These farmers struggle to cultivate plentiful harvests in the midst of a changing climate, which brings unpredictable and extreme weather events that devastate crops. The Canadian Foodgrains Bank’s Climate Fund is a way for Canadian’s to respond to families impacted by climate change. This year, donations to the Climate Fund will support PWS&D’s agro-ecological and food security project in Guatemala. The project has been transformative for Catalina, a farmer who received support to adapt to climate change, grow more vegetables and improve her family’s nutrition. “I am grateful that we can see another way to live a healthy life.”
