Christian Aid marked its 70th anniversary in 2015. Our annual review reports back on what Christian Aid Scotland achieved in this landmark year.
The anniversary formed the back-drop to our 70 Munros challenge, and was also the impetus behind our major supporter conference, Harvest appeal and Service of Thanksgiving at St Giles Cathedral.
The review also shows another year of working in close partnership with the Scottish churches, from the monthly ecumenical events marking ACT Alliance's call to pray for Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory to our new three year partnership with the Church of Scotland Guild through our Caring for Mother Earth project in Bolivia.
We also continued to deliver essential maternal health services in Malawi thanks to fundraising pledges from churches and groups of churches around the country which are match-funded from the Scottish Government's International Development Fund.
‘We've been reflecting on our journey so far, celebrating all you have helped us achieve, and looking forward to a future where everyone's needs are met.'
Kathy Galloway, Head of Christian Aid Scotland
Christian Aid supporters also helped to push forward our climate justice and tax justice campaigns, keeping tackling the root causes of poverty on the national agenda.
Underpinning all of this was another successful Christian Aid Week which once more raised over £1.5 million in and around the week, an increase of two per cent on 2014.
However you contributed to our work last year, thank you for your commitment and support.
