We love our coffee. But climate change could drive up the cost for us and, more importantly, the farmers who grow it. In Guatemala, high temperatures, heavy rains and droughts devastated more than 22 per cent of the crop last year, putting 200,000 people out of work and leaving them unable to feed their families.

Please REBLOG if you believe coffee farmers shouldn’t be carrying the cost of climate change.

Here’s a story to put a smile on your face. Little Noah Fogg, just SIX years old, has just completed an amazing 2.5 km run to raise money for Oxfam because, in his words, he ‘wants to help people in different countries who have nowhere to live and no clothes to wear’.

Not only did Noah complete the run, he went even further and actually ran a mighty 3.2 km in total, raising a massive £1,268 and smashing his original target of £200 for our lifesaving work.

Share this if you think Noah is a real-life superhero!

You might think finding drinking water wouldn’t be difficult during a flood, but the opposite can be true, with sources contaminated with dirty flood water.

That’s why, in Bangladesh, we installed wells high above the flood level, so people have clean safe drinking water, even when extreme weather strikes.

Preparing for disaster – sometimes the simplest things can make a massive difference.
