While crises were happening throughout the year, and continue even today, you have helped to save and change the lives for many men, women, children - and whole communities - around the world.
Because of your compassion and generosity we were able to achieve so much in 2012. You made change possible!
The accomplishments shared below are a testament to the more than 70,000 donors (including you!) who’ve made this work possible. Because of you this is what we were able to do:
- We staved off malnutrition in 23,585 Guatemalan mothers and infants.
- In Yemen, food distributions are helping the most vulnerable — 50,000 single mothers, pregnant and nursing women, and children under five — survive since political uprisings interrupted imports and basic services.
- In Iraq, we taught 5,500 women to read — and learn their rights in a newly democratic country.
- Our teams in Mali helped 2,300 families survive the worst food shortage in decades.
- In the new nation of South Sudan, school supplies and newly constructed classrooms are helping 13,969 children continue their education.
- In Afghanistan, 2,000 women graduated from our job training classes.
To show our appreciation, we have put together a slideshow to share how much we were able to accomplish because of your contribution. Check out how you have changed and transformed lives!

On behalf of the millions of people our work has touched this year, thank you!
