People in Guatemala work for better agriculture systems
In zones in Guatemala affected by drought, CRS works with farmers in soil conservation techniques and water harvesting systems. These systems help them grow better crops to feed their families.

Your voice is needed now to help our global family experiencing hunger! Congress passed another continuing resolution to fund the government through Feb. 18. By not passing the 2022 federal budget, Congress risks losing the additional $4 billion proposed for poverty-reducing accounts.

Ask your member of Congress to speak with Congressional leadership to ensure the highest funding levels possible for programs that help prevent and end global hunger and malnutrition. It is critical that Congress maintains the funds allocated by the House and Senate, and it is now up to Congressional leadership as they negotiate the final bill. 

One in 9 people around the world are hungry, and COVID-19 has increased the threat of food insecurity globally. Foreign aid helps communities access food in emergencies. It provides school meals to children, so they have energy to concentrate and learn. It also helps farmers affected by changing climates learn more effective and sustainable ways to farm and earn a living.
