Annual Review 2020/21
In 2020/21 we supported 728,000 people across 30 projects in six countries in east and southern Africa. Three major projects that were completed this year achieved a significant impact on hunger in our region, and over all of the countries 85% of families achieved food security through their work with us this year.
