Country: Afghanistan
Goat farmers in Afganistan

Can you imagine living in a place whose summer is described as '120 days of wind'?

Many people in Afghanistan live in these harsh environments where the weather and other factors make their lives difficult. Harvest for them is not usually a time of plenty.

However, a Christian Aid partner has come up with an ingenious idea that has transformed the lives of the local people by using the one element that makes life so difficult - the wind!

You will hear about two children and their families who live in these harsh environments in Afghanistan and how their lives have changed recently.

As you celebrate Harvest this year, listen to this windy tale and find out why people in Afghanistan are celebrating their new gift.
