Who is Christian Aid?

Thank you for visiting us to find out more about Christian Aid and our work around the world.

Rojan with a freshly caught fish

Christian Aid has an aim - an end to poverty - and we believe that vision can become a reality. Poverty robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives.

Christian Aid is an agency of the churches in Britain and Ireland that works around the world with those in need.

We work with anyone who needs help, regardless of faith or nationality.

  • We work with anyone who needs help, regardless of faith or nationality.'

We provide emergency assistance where there is great need. For example, our partners were working to distribute aid 30 minutes after the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami struck.

Tackling the root causes of poverty

Christian Aid also tackles the effects of poverty at its root causes - for example, companies fail to pay the taxes owed to the countries where they work.

Christian Aid stands alongside all those who struggle against poverty, powerlessness and injustice; places honesty and respect for others at the heart of what it does; supports work that empowers individuals and communities; fights injustice and inequality; and is committed to caring for the earth for future generations.

Working through partners

Christian Aid works with and through partners overseas: churches, ecumenical bodies, local non-governmental organisations and movements who have common values and competence in poverty eradication.

It has an integrated approach to poverty eradication – working on humanitarian relief, long-term development, specific advocacy issues and campaigns for change and influence.
