My story

Our group of local heroes are rising to the challenge of 70k in May – walking, running (10k and marathon), cycling (the distance from Lands End to – Romanby), and swimming (70k = 2,800 lengths) to get there, we hope, several times over!

Your donation will encourage us along the way, and will be put to such good use in Christian Aid's work to help the most in need push back against poverty and make a future for their families.

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.
