My story

Dear Supporter(s)

Please help us to help the people of Malawi this Christian Aid week, who, on top of the regular issues of drought and crop failure, have had a really bad start to 2023 with tropical storms, outbreaks of cholera and polio, the continuation of COVID and devastation caused by Cyclone Freddy.

No mum should have the heart-breaking choice of which of their children they can afford to be educated and no hardworking young people should be forced to give up on education, with their dreams for the future dashed.

We want a better world where every child is able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We hope for a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods, or ruined by drought.

Together, we can help people secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential and with your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. We won’t stop until everyone can live a full, poverty-free life.

We know times are not easy for many people  in the UK at present but we are asking you, if you able, please to give what you can. You really can  can make a difference.

Thank you from all at St Mark’s Bilton on behalf of Christian Aid

God Bless

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.
