My story

Christian Aid is on a journey to build a world based on love, dignity, equality and to fight for justice for the world's poorest people, who suffer increasingly from climate change and yet have no voice. Extreme poverty robs people of their dignity and denies them their rights, renders them powerless, unrepresented and vulnerable.

When natural disasters strike in countries like Malawi, Christian Aid is among the first on the ground to provide emergency relief and support.

Christian Aid changes lives: Christian Aid Week (CAW) helps fund the vital work CA does.

CAW2023 highlights Malawi, where 2 recent cyclones have devastated harvests. It is easy to identify with the story of Esther Saizi...

"i have two grandchildren. I want to raise them in the Christian Way and send them to school. When the children come to visit me I feel good in my heart. I am so proud of my grandson...we are community that help one another a lot."

With the support of Christian Aid partner, Nandola Farmers Association, Esther is now able to command a fair price for her crops and with the gift of an oven bakes bread rolls for the community and has in addition secured a better future for her daughters Ziwone and Rashida and her grandchildren.

Together, with your help, we can help people secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfil their potential.


Thank you


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.
