Help tackle the climate crisis — Adriana's story

The climate crisis is washing away crops and destroying clean, safe water sources

With the climate crisis bearing down on them, people like Adriana (pictured above) are at risk of being left without food or clean safe drinking water.

Extreme weather events like cyclones and floods are becoming more frequent and ferocious, because of the climate crisis. With each cyclone, flood or king tide, gardens are inundated and precious crops and freshwater sources are destroyed.

Adriana is resourceful and resilient, but with disaster constantly looming it’s becoming harder and harder to grow the food she and her family rely on.

“Climate change is affecting our gardens. The sea rising has filled all our gardens and we do not have food to eat. When we go to the garden, it is already spoilt”
