My story

Cyclone Freddy lasted 34 days devastating Malawi displacing over 508,000 people; hundreds lost their lives - plus an increased risk of malaria and cholera in the immediate aftermath. 

Christian Aid has been able to deliver £10m of emergency assistance to over 770,000 people affected by the war in Ukraine. The war has caused the sharp loss of grain exports from Ukraine. That loss plus the worldwide increase in the cost of fuel is hitting the poorest countries like Malawi far harder than the better off. 

With your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. We won’t stop until everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.

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.
