My story

I was a street collector for Christian Aid for 20 years. I'm now 95 and live in a Care Home, The Lady Nuffield Home in Oxford.

My church, St Peter's Wolvercote, is collecting for Christian Aid week and I want to join in and prove to myself I can still help.

For information on how the money we raise will be used see:

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.
