My story

Dear Friends,

Please help us to help the world's poorest and most vulnerable people this Christian Aid Week.

People like Aline, a mother in Burundi, where malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of the population, putting them at the edge of survival. Aline  found a lifeline through Christian Aid who funded her with small business training so she could set up as a grocery wholesaler. She now has what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Or the children of Gaza, trying to survive in the middle of a war zone. Christian Aid's partners at the Palestinian Medical Relief Society used to run 11 health centres in Gaza before October 7th. Now only one is still able to operate. So instead, the organisation sends out small teams on foot, which include doctors, nurses, social workers and physiotherapists. They visit overcrowded shelters across the war-torn territory to treat people with blast injuries or infections and provide care and recreational activities for children

You can help ensure more children in Gaza get the help they need and more people in Burundi to get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their hopes and ambitions. 

Thank you for your donation.

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.
