All Regatu ever wanted was a decent life for her children. But for this mother of two from Ethiopia, that never seemed like a possibility. But now, thanks to the work of the local church, she’s unstoppable.

This #WorldWaterDay we're celebrating Didar and his family who were taught a simple but effective way to make their own water filter, protecting them from water-borne diseases. ‘We had no idea or knowledge on how to treat water,’ Didar told us. ‘But now I tell everyone about how good the nadi filters are, and tell everyone to get one! I even offer to make one for them!’

Read and share Didar's story and raise awareness of the importance of safe drinking water for all.

Tearfund’s partners are in Aleppo serving thousands of people who have remained there.

In recent months they have brought food and hygiene packs to families trapped in the besieged city. In this piece, you can see some of that work, carried out with volunteers from the local church, and get a taste of life for those families who have stayed put in Aleppo.

Prayer can move heaven and change nations. Please join with us today as we pray for #EastAfrica.

Father God,
Thank you that you hear our prayers.
Today as one people we cry out for East Africa.
We pray for your protection and your provision
For all who are vulnerable.
We pray that your Mighty Hand will rest upon these nations;
That dry lands will be quenched with rain,
And that the fires of conflict will be extinguished
By your peace.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
Amen.

On 15 March 2011, major unrest broke out in the Syrian cities of Damascus and Aleppo, escalating a civil uprising triggered earlier in the month in the southern city of Daraa. No one could have foreseen that six years later we would have witnessed so much death and destruction and yet, still not see an end in sight.

But God has been present in the midst of the pain – he sees and knows each individual. He hears their cries and ours on their behalf. Will you join us in praying for Syria?
