My story

As a supporter of Christian Aid, I used to do lots of fundraising as a staff member and also as a volunteer.  Now that I live abroad, I can't do the house to house collection or other typical fundraising events, so this    e-envelope is ideal for me to spread the word about Christian Aid Week.

No mother 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.

These are just some of things that money donated to Christian Aid can achieve.  Together, we can help people secure a better future for people in poor countries, giving them the chance to fulfil their potential.

Please donate generously

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.
