My story

Before the pandemic I took part in a number of Christian Aid's Circle the City sponsored walks. We followed a circular route visiting churches and other places of worship in London's Square Mile. In 2020 and 2021 I devised my own circular walks passing churches and place of worship in my local area.

This year the inaugural Freedom Walk will follow a10km route from St. James, Piccadilly ending at St. Paul's Cathedral. Like Circle the City we will visit various churches along the way but covering a slightly different area. I really enjoyed Circle the City so I'm looking forward to this new walk. I hope you will feel able to support Christian Aid by sponsoring me because:

'No mum should have the heart-breaking choice of which child to educate and which one will miss out on their dreams. 

No hardworking young person should be forced to give up on education, locking them into poverty.

We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods.

Together, we can help people secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential.

With your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. We won’t stop until everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.'

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.
