My story

In May every year I take part in an event called the Great Outdoors Challenge when i hike across the Scottish hills from the west coast to the east.  Every year  I regret that it clashes with Christian Aid Week particularly since my local Beauly Church of Scotland is holding its own one day walk for Christian Aid.

So this year I decided to mark the week (12-18 May) by raising funds during the Challenge.

Thank you for any donations.

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.
