Struggling to make ends meet? Prices of basic foods doubling? Familiar story? Spare a thought for the people of Kagera, where prices of basic necessities like beans, rice and flour have more than doubled over the past year. Kagera is a poor, remote part of Tanzania, where many of the population live on less than £1.50 a day. Churches in Suffolk have been linked with churches in Kagera for nearly 30 years.

During the 40 days before Easter, churches across the county are joining in the Bishops’ Lent Appeal for Kagera. The money raised will give a helping hand to those in Kagera who work to empower and equip subsistence farmers, doctors, priests and evangelists on their road to self sufficiency.
