My story

We have been supporters of Christian Aid for many years. This is a charity which not only provides practical support to some of the most impoverished countries in the world - it challenges governments to ensure equality of opportunities for all, and has been championing the need to tackle Climate Change since long before it became the major issue we all recognise today.

In addition to our church's annual fundraising support for Christian Aid Week we are taking on the challenge of 70K in May. Why? To help people throughout the world push back against poverty.

As an example, did you know that malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of people in Burundi? See the panel below for more about how Christian Aid has helped the likes of Aline escape from poverty and suffering.  Today, she can afford food, clothes, and essential healthcare for her family. 

Christian Aid could reach many more people like her in some of the most deprived communities in the world.That is why we are 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.
