My story

Christian Aid Week this year will be focussing on farming communities in Malawi, where people are paying a harsh price for the global cost of living and climate crises.

From May 14-20, Christian Aid supporters are doing all kinds of things to raise money and make a difference in places where severe weather has ruined crops and middlemen have taken hard-earned profits from those trying to farm the land.

Money raised in Yeovil through supporters at St John's Church will help Christian Aid’s partners to empower vulnerable communities to find practical and sustainable ways out of poverty, including gaining the skills to grow more resilient crops, restore soil fertility, increase harvests and to join cooperatives to earn more for their crops.

With your help, Christian Aid can make dreams come true around the world, We won't stop until every one can live their full God-given life, free from poverty.

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.
