Christian Aid has a vision – an end to poverty – and it believes that vision can become a reality. It provides urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.
Our local work involves encouraging and supporting people across the Eastern Region to engage in giving, prayer and practical actions for the world’s poorest in response to Jesus’ call to “proclaim good news to the poor, proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free” (Luke 4:18).
What do we do?
Our partners work in over 40 countries around the world with people affected by hunger, poverty and disasters. We seek to bring relief and development and to stand up for the rights of people affected.
Why we do it
We are the agency of our churches in Britain and Ireland and are mandated to work on relief, development and advocacy for poverty eradication. Christian Aid’s work is founded on Christian faith, inspired by hope and acts to change an unjust world through charity – practical love and care for our neighbours.
