My story

Having made door-to-door collections for 8 years, we, like many other charities were thwarted by Covid-19. Since then we have raised funds via Big Brekkies and other one off events. 

This year we are moving to digital collections, although we will also hold a Big Brekkie in June and a Poverty Lunch at the end of May. 

Christian Aid is a favourite charity because it works with the poorest people in the world, helping them to help themselves and empowering women.

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.
