My story

I like what Christian Aid stands for and my family and I always used to do house to house collecting for it. It is Christian Aid week next week and now that I am old (82) and disabled what can I do?

I looked at the corrtidor outside our flat and realised that I could try and traverse it 100 times - the corridor is about 20 yards long. I will attempt this next Saturday (13 May). I will try and do the 100 lengths in one go but it is unlikely that I will manage that, 3 goes of 30 to 40 lengths with a sit down in between each is more likely.

So could you sponsor me please? Even a small amount helps and as I am asking my grandchildren a small amount is all that is needed.

Together we can do something to help children all over the world to be educated and for attempts to be made to grow and feed people despite climate change

Thank you so very much for sponsoring me

Love, Caroline x x 


How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
