My story

I’m taking on the challenge of running 70km this May. This is a biiig challenge for me...I've started and failed with Couch to 5k numerous times. But this time I will have the motivation of doing it to push back against the inhumanity of poverty. So, big stuff!

Despite what people can think, Christian Aid takes an inclusive approach to helping people of all faiths and none, and from every background.

Donations could help ensure more people living in extreme poverty get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their personal hopes and ambitions. Even £10 could provide one person with the training that can then supports their family to set up a small business - such as selling home-grown vegetables.

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

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.
