My story

Our church stands with the poor and marginalised, those whose lives are made intolerable by poverty and climate change, and their results, and works to bring about change and empower people to improve their lives. Christian Aid is our partner and agency to spread Christian love and concern and support farmers and families in less advantaged places to better themselves and their lives through education, funding and training or other needed resources. By supporting this annual appeal your donation will assist this and reduce the costs of fundraising - as we are no longer able to conduct door to door collections.

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.
