My story

Please support this year's Christian Aid Week appeal by donating through this online envelope and sharing it with your family and friends.

Last year Little Gaddesden raised over £950 for Christian Aid Week. We are hoping to exceed that figure in 2023.

Soaring costs are affecting people here and around the world.

Families in Malawi are paying the price of this global crisis. Food, fuel, fertiliser and school fees have doubled in price in the last 12 months. Hard-working farmers are seeing their harvests fail as the climate crisis brings increasingly erratic weather.

Christian Aid has been working in Malawi for almost 20 years. Your donations could support Christian Aid's work helping farmers to find practical and sustainable ways out of poverty including giving them the skills to:

- grow crops that more resilient to the climate crisis

- restore soil fertility

- increase harvests

- learn business skills

- join cooperatives to earn more for their crops.

Thank you.

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.
