My story

Malawi and East Africa in general are suffering from the worst effects of climate change with increased times of drought and flooding. Relentless rains  have destroyed homes and people have lost their lives  Crops are destroyed leading to famine and death.

Christian Aid supports farmers to  grow drought resistant crops and develop new methods of farming. 



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.
