My story
Help us support even more people living in poverty
 - this year in Burundi, a small land-locked East African kingdom,
malnutrition and poverty affect more than 70% of the population
- survival is a daily struggle.

Jobs and food are scarce, homes often have no electricity or running water.

Aline was abused, homeless and hungry. But 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.
