Christian Aid Scotland annual review

January 2015

Thank you for journeying with us in 2014.

The year's review highlights how Christian Aid supporters and churches in Scotland worked in partnership with vulnerable communities across the world to end poverty.

Scotland annual review 2014 cover

And what a year it was!

Your commitment to fundraising, campaigning and praying has helped us take many positive strides forward. We're incredibly grateful for your continued support.

The 'Fear less' theme of Christian Aid Week 2014 highlighted the work of our partners bringing about peace in areas of conflict. Over £1.6 million was raised in Scotland as a result of your efforts.

Shortly afterwards, the Commonwealth Games began in Glasgow. This gave us a great opportunity to showcase the work that our partners are doing in Commonwealth communities with our series 12 Days of Commonwealth.  

  • The challenges facing Commonwealth communities, and their resourcefulness in the face of adversity, are often invisible in our media. We are grateful for the part played by our supporters in bearing witness to them – through community and church events, fundraising, campaigning, and in prayer and worship.' 

Kathy Galloway, Head of Christian Aid Scotland

 

You've also joined us this year in responding to emergencies, lobbying politicians to act on behalf of the world's poorest, praying for peace, and hosting countless events and fundraising activities.

All of this helped to bring about lasting change in the lives of some of the world's poorest and most disadvantaged people.

The year ahead

2015 will be a big year for us as we mark the 70th anniversary of Christian Aid acting in solidarity with the world's poor.

We'll stay in touch about our plans to mark this milestone, beginning with our 70 Munros challenge. We hope you will consider joining or supporting this challenge.

We look forward to continuing to work with you this year towards our shared vision of justice, dignity and freedom for all.
