My story

At Christian Aid we work towards a better world. We raise money for emergency aid and long term development and campaign against injustice, including climate change. We imagine a future where prolonged drought no longer withers crops, where crops are not flattened by cyclones and washed away by floods.

For instance, Christian Aid funds projects to spread the use of drought and flood resistant crops, such as the pigeon peas shown in the picture, and sets up cooperatives to develop fair and sustainable markets.

With your help, we can make dreams come true around the world. We won’t stop until everyone can live a full life, able to fulfill their potential.  We want every child to have the education they need to break free from poverty.

Please don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation. It increases your donation by 25% at no extra cost to 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.
