My story

Marlow Christian Aid Group consists of churches across Marlow, Marlow Bottom, Bisham and Little Marlow working together to raise funds for Christian Aid.

During Christian Aid Week this year, volunteers will be delivering donation envelopes to homes throughout the area with directions to drop-off collection points and a link for giving online.  Also, a concert is being held on Sunday 12th May at Christ Church Marlow by Taplow Youth Choirs and a sponsored walk on Saturday 18th May from Bix, Oxfordshire with all proceeds from both events going to Christian Aid.   

This year, Christian Aid is highlighting its work 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.

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

Thanks for your support.

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.
