Tales of how cattle are giving a voice to the very poorest in rural Ethiopia will be brought to life this March when a Christian Aid worker shares his experiences of communities on the edge of survival.

Tekalign Kebede, responsible for projects encouraging resilient livelihoods in South West Ethiopia, will be interviewed during the Church@four service 4pm St Martin in the Wood, Queens Road, Chandlers Ford.

In his first visit to Hampshire Tekalign will explain how climate change is threatening ways of life as pastoralist farmers struggle to find water sources in parched land.
