£20,000 raised for Burundi in 2020/21

We thank God for His generosity which has been shown through you in raising funds for the Mwumba programme in the financial year 2020/21. This money has been given in a variety of ways including: child sponsorship, regular monthly donations, individual gifts and special appeals.

Please read the latest newsletter below which shares the testimonies of farmers who have benefitted from  teaching in Climate Smart Agriculture. There is also news of: a) Training in Health and Nutrition, b) Support in Education and c) Training of Church Leaders.

In 2022 a mid-term evaluation of the 5-Year programme (October 2019 – September 2024) will be carried out. Please continue in your support of this work which is transforming the lives of 15,000 people in Mwumba, Burundi. If you would like to sponsor a child, give a monthly donation or help in any other way, please write to Steve Stordy (Email: wadhurstburundilink@gmail.com)

Burundi Quarterly Report 2021


Food for the Hungry believes that change must not be imposed from outside.  The local leaders identify the needs that are most important to their community. Any change is brought about by working with the local people – Food for the Hungry call this “walking with the poor”.

Food for the Hungry also believes any change must be sustainable over the long term –  there is no quick fix.  The Wadhurst-Burundi Link aims to continue its support for the community of Mwumba over the next three years until 2025.
