Conflict and natural disasters devastate lives. All too often it's the lives of the world's poorest people. You'll help us and our partners around the world to deliver and ultimately save lives and reduce human suffering.
At Christian Aid we have a vision of a better world. More than half the world lives in poverty. We aim to put a stop to that. So we campaign against the inequalities that keep people poor and we work with local organisations to give people strength to find their own solutions to the problems they face, irrespective of their religion. If you're as determined as we are to end poverty and injustice across the world, work with us to make change happen.
