Bananas - Alternative charity gifts

Banana plants

Give a family a bunch of reasons to smile

Eating bananas has so many benefits, but growing them has a lot, too! Available all year round, bananas provide a steady food source between harvests for vulnerable families. And the surplus will bring a ripe income at market. I’m sure you can see the ap-peel.

Gift in action

Before Meresiyana received her banana plants, times were hard. Her family were struggling on one meal a day, and she even had to sell what little clothes she had to pay for her children’s malaria treatment. Today, she has her own business selling bananas, and the whole family are happy and healthy, eating three nutritious meals a day.

This gift goes towards our Livelihoods programme.
