My story

Christian Aid Week 12th - 18 May

During 2023, Ruislip Manor Methodist Church raised an amazing £1222 for Christian Aid.

A BIG thank you to everyone who donated or supported Christian Aid in anyway.

This year, in addition to the traditional envelopes available at church, you can also donate online using this page.

We will be holding a COFFEE MORNING on Saturday 11 May from 10am - 12 noon in the Coffee Lounge.   

There will be delicious cakes to enjoy and hand made cards, a bring & buy stall and books to buy, as well as a raffle.

We hope that you can come along and join in the fun.   If you are unable to make the Coffee Morning, but wish to give a donation, please use the link below.

This years Christian Aid Week appeal focuses on the people in Burundi.

In Burundi, malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of the population, putting them at the edge of survival.

Coming back from the edge isn't easy when food can be scarce, disease prevalent, and jobs hard to come by. If you have a home, chances are there's no electricity or running water, and it may not even survive the next storm.

Aline, pushed to the brink, was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back. She found a lifeline through Christian Aid funded small business training and she set up as a grocery wholesaler. This meant Aline achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

You can help ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their hopes and ambitions.

Donate and help someone push back against poverty this Christian Aid Week.

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.
