Christian Aid is an international development charity working in over 50 countries to help people in the fight against poverty.

They work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. They are part of a wider movement for social justice.

Where does the money go?

They work with partners across the globe to help transform the lives of others. So whether it’s rehabilitating former child soldiers in Uganda to supporting people living with HIV in South Africa, or helping communities prepare for floods and hurricanes and speak out for change across Latin America and the Caribbean they root out the causes of poverty and tackle them.

What they do?

From HIV awareness raising to supporting human rights, they don’t just tackle poverty – they challenge its causes.

Their manifesto for change highlights eight of the global issues that underpin poverty, and some of the changes required to shift the balance of power in favour of the poorest:

– Climate change

– Conflict

– Corruption

– Disaster

– Food and Agriculture

– Health

– Inequality

– Tax

Their work spans across a number of projects such as the Syria Emergency Appeal, Nets Now for Malaria, Tax Justice Tour Bus, Enough Food for Everyone IF coalition and key moments of the year including Christmas, Lent, Easter, Harvest and not forgetting Christian Aid Week.

Their work is funded by the donations of their supporters whether it is a one off donation or direct debit – you can be confident that you are helping to fund Christian Aid’s projects around the world.
