My story

I’m fundraising this Christian Aid Week! Why? To help people push back against poverty. Did you know, malnourishment and poverty affect more than 70% of people in Burundi?

Christian Aid are working to empower families in Burundi build reliable and diverse incomes. Take Aline, for example. She found a lifeline in Christian Aid after she felt the full force of extreme poverty, when an early marriage ended in abuse and violence. We helped her with small business training and she set up as a grocery wholesaler. Today, Aline can afford food, clothes, and essential healthcare for her family.

The pilgrimage will begin with a launch at the Bishop of Llandaff''s residence, Llys Esgob, on Sunday 12 May, where there will be a fundraising cream tea and a blessing of the pilgrim's staff to be used for the six day walk. The bishop will join us at the end of the pilgrimage for  service at 1400 at the church in Penrhys.

Why not join us for a part of the walk which will start each day at 1000 and end at lunchtime? Details from Andrew Sully

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.
