My story

I have been a supporter of Christian Aid for over fifty years. Since 1945 when they started their support for refugees, they have worked through local partners worldwide in the poorest communities in the world to help improve practises in health, education and farming. As well as this continued work they are active advocates for climate change work, environmental protection, women and childrens' rights and climate justice.

They were an initiator of a partnership of charities to form DEC ( Disasters Emergency Committee) and work in humanitarian effort in natural disaster areas, war areas and disease endemic programmes. Last year they delivered emergency assistance to 770,000 people in Ukraine and work with two partners there still. They have worked with refugees in Syria since 2015 as well as with partners for refugees in Afghanistan and North Africa.

Their work is for those of any religion or none. The need for their assistance to the most vulnerable is now even greater than ever.

Can you donate this Christian Aid Week? Every pound is important!

With thanks, Helen



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.
