Thank you

You have been amazing. You have baked, prayed, walked, swam, worshipped, collected, donated, taught, shared, cycled, presented, cooked, bought, climbed, abseiled, played, ran, performed, tweeted, sold, read, listened, discussed, worked, encouraged, talked and so much more for Christian Aid Week 2015.

We are truly humbled by your efforts. We are so deeply grateful. You are our heroes. Thank you, on behalf of Loko, Adi and the hundreds of thousands of people you will help because of what you have done this week.

With love from our staff and partners.

The price of being a woman

‘I pray to God as I walk, asking him to change my life and lead us out of this.’

With your help, we can provide cows to vulnerable women in Ethiopia – just £150 is enough to buy a cow and a promising future for someone like Loko.

Get involved

How you can help

How a cow changes everything

Two years ago, Adi was the poorest of the poor. Then Christian Aid provided a cow which gave her family nutritious milk. Adi churned butter and made money. It gave her a position in the community where her opinion is valued. Now her dreams have turned into plans and she has saved enough money to build a small shop.
