My story

It's so easy for us to take education and good food for granted. I have seen the effects of illiteracy and malnutrition first hand in many contexts. This year we are focussing on the devastating effects of cyclone Freddie on the people of Malawi, which has displaced hundreds of thousands of people and created untold misery.

Christian Aid Week is a wonderful opportunity to make a positive difference to the lives of others. Please give generously to help break the cycles of poverty. 

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.
