My story

This year the appeal focuses on Burundi, where malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of the population, putting them at the edge of survival.

Pictured here is Aline, who was abused, homeless and hungry, but 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.

Your donation will help ensure more people in Burundi and other vulnerable countries get the skills and knowledge they need to support themselves and their families.

We’re holding a fundraising event in Church on Saturday 18th May between 11.00 and 2.00. Come along for a morning coffee or a light lunch, bring and buy recycled goods, take part in a quiz or competition and chat with old friends and new.

Thank you.

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.
