My story

I have always been a supporter of Christian Aid more or less since I began earning a living myself. I like the way they work with local organisations rather than through governments which can often be corrupt.

I'll attempt to walk along the Thames Path on the south bank from Staines to the barrier, which I've done on a number of occasions. Together with the 10 k of the London Freedom Walk, this should cover the challenge.

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.
