My story

Would you like to be part of something amazing and truly life enhancing for the poorest people in the world?  We know times are especially hard for many of us in our community right now but together we can make an enormous difference.  Giving just £1 will help transform lives.  Will you help your local churches in New Town and Berechurch raise funds for the vital work of Christian Aid; a well established and respected charity which supports people of all faiths and none to help themselves out of poverty?  If you'd like to know more please search the web for Christian Aid Week to see a range of projects made possible by your donations:  

We dream of a better world. We want every child to be able to have the education they need to break free of poverty. We imagine a future where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods.

Together, we can help people secure a better future for their families, giving them the chance to fulfill their potential.  

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