Bangladesh: the Canary in the Coal Mine

Adaptation to changing weather patterns is critical, particularly for countries like Bangladesh and India, where World Renew walks alongside the poorest of the poor. This video is the first of a series being released about Bangladesh and its precarious position due to the extreme weather hazards that are occurring. Today the Rohingya refugees are also desperately compromised by the pending monsoon rains and cyclone season - two events which are typically intensified by rising temperatures.

Stand in the Gap in Malawi

It is hot and the land is parched. In the last three years, his rural village in the south has experienced flash flooding, locusts, armyworms, and drought. Each year there is something that makes it difficult for the 61-year-old man to feed his family through farming.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of traveling to Ottawa to attend a conference organized by World Renew on food security, environmental stewardship, and small-scale farmers. I’d like to share with you one of the things that particularly stood out to me after attending this conference.

Call to Action to End Famine

We are mobilizing prayers and actions to end famine, as we are deeply disturbed that more people face famine today than at any time in modern history. Famine has been declared by the United Nations in South Sudan, while Somalia, Nigeria, and Yemen are on the brink of famine. The situation has been precipitated by a deadly combination of drought, conflicts, marginalization and weak governance.  Across these four countries, 20 million people face starvation and many millions more across the world are experiencing alarming levels of hunger.

Learning about Creation Care in South Asia

Creation Care is an important part of World Renew’s work in several countries around the world. In Bangladesh, many of these projects deal with how humans interact with the land agriculturally. This year, for example, World Renew is involved in the development of floating gardens that help farmers adapt to devastating flash floods caused by climactic variations.

Irrigating Crops in Mozambique

Mozambique’s population is growing at an annual rate of 2.5 percent. This has put pressure on the country’s food resources, which currently cannot meet the increase in demand. Unless prompt strategic measures are taken to increase production rapidly, food aid or commercial food imports on a large scale will be inevitable.

Doing Justice in Ottawa

When I became a Canadian, one of the most moving parts of the ceremony was when our group of would-be citizens from around the world stood as one and recited the oath together. The staff from Citizenship and Immigration Canada emphasized that it was very important for us to say the words out loud rather than silently mouthing the words—so important so that they actually walked around to check that we were making sound as we spoke.

Advent Word 2016: Prune

We prune to let go of growth, letting die what is alive but not growing in the best direction. We prune to let go of death, letting go what is dead but still taking up space. Pruning is a form of dying in order for the tree to more fully live and bear more fruit.
