My story

Langside Parish Church believes in peace and justice - and we are connected with the world both here in Battlefield/ Langside and poor and marginalised people all over the world.

We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the access to public services that they need to survive and thrive in a country where they can have some influence and voice.

We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods. We campaign for climate justice while we work to help people adapt and resist.

Together, we can support our brothers and sisters - like Jen and her family in Malawi - and work to help them secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential.

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

This Christian Aid Week 2023 we are all feeling the effects of proves rising and insecurity - if you can help even with small change we can turn it into: seeds and tools, training and advocacy, income support, health care and expertise to combat climate change. Thanks and please get involved!

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.
