    Your SCIAF donations will be doubled again!
    For the second year in a row, the UK government is matching your Lenten donations £1 for £1 as part of the UK Aid Match scheme. Every penny SCIAF receives for the WEE BOX appeal between 5th February and 4th May will be doubled.

    This Lent, the WEE BOX shines a spotlight on SCIAF’s work with cattle-herding families in the drought-prone Borana region of Ethiopia. You will have seen on TV that drought in Ethiopia is now threatening lives – making your donations even more important.
