My story

(English version below)

Rydw i am gymryd her 70K ym mis Mai. Pam? I helpu pobl i wthio'n erbyn tlodi. Oeddech chi'n gwybod fod diffyg maeth a thlodi yn effeithio mwy na 70% o bobl Burundi?

Mae Cymorth Cristnogol yn gweithio i alluogi teuluoedd yn Burundi i greu incwm dibynadwy ac amrywiol. Er engraifft, Aline. Darganfyddodd achubiaeth yn Cymorth Cristnogol wedi iddi brofi grym llawn tlodi eithafol, pan y daeth ei phriodas gynnar i ben mewn camdriniaeth a thrais. Fe wnaethom ei helpu gyda hyfforddiant  busnes bychan ac fe gychwynodd fel  cyfanwerthwr bwyd. Heddiw mae Aline yn gallu fforddio bwyd, dillad a gofal iechyd hanfodol i'w theulu.

Mae yna fwy o bobl y gallai Cymorth Cristnogol eu cyrraedd - a dyna pam rydw i'n codi arian ac yn cymryd rhan yn yr her 70K ym mis Mai.

Gall yr arian a godir ofalu y bydd mwy o bobl yn cael y sgiliau a'r wybodaeth maen nhw ei angen i gyflawni eu gobeithion a'u huchelgais. Gall £10 ddarparu un person gyda'r hyfforddiant sy'n cynnal eu teulu i sefydlu busnes bach fel gwerthu'r llysiau byddant yn eu tyfu.

Gyda'n gilydd gallwn wneud gwahaniaeth sy'n para. Diolch am eich cefnogaeth!

I’m taking on the challenge of 70K in May. Why? To help people push back against poverty. Did you know, malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of people in Burundi?

Christian Aid are working to empower families in Burundi to build reliable and diverse incomes. Take Aline, for example. She found a lifeline in Christian Aid after she felt the full force of extreme poverty, when an early marriage ended in abuse and violence. We helped her with small business training and she set up as a grocery wholesaler. Today, Aline can afford food, clothes, and essential healthcare for her family.

There’s more people Christian Aid could reach – and that’s why I’m fundraising and taking part in 70K in May.

The money raised can help ensure more people get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their hopes and ambitions.  £10 could provide one person with the training that supports their family to set up a small business, such as selling home-grown vegetables.

Together we can make a lasting difference.  Thank you for your support!

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.
