The economic crisis in Sri Lanka left four-year-old Kavi* and his family having to cut back on meals, and going months without fish or meat. But with Save the Children’s support, the family are growing their own food to survive the crisis. We’ve provided Kalan’s mum Rani* with a gardening kit, containing seven types of seeds and all the tools she needs. Now Kalan stands in a garden that is bursting into life.

Each donation gift helps change the lives of children across the world. Perfect for an alternative thoughtful gift.
In many countries prone to drought, families struggle to grow food. The soil is poor and they don’t have the tools they need. The gift of gardening tools, hardy seeds and fertiliser could help a vulnerable family grow vegetables at home.
