Thank you

Christian Aid Week

In May, incredible supporters like you stepped out in force across the UK, determined to change the lives of women like Loko struggling in Ethiopia.

Loko had no choice but to make a back breaking, dangerous eight hour walk several times a week to collect firewood to sell – otherwise she feared her children would starve.

Moved by this injustice Loko experienced, you responded. Whether you donated, collected, prayed, baked, walked, or abseiled – you did something amazing. You’ve helped to lighten Loko’s burden by buying her the cow she so desperately needed.

Loko’s words say it all: ‘You have brought me happiness.’

Please make sure to pay in any outstanding funds as soon as possible so we can get the vital funds you have raised to where they are needed. Through your continued support, we'll be bringing cows, hope and a brighter future to more women.

Please pay in
