We're based in countries affected by disasters so we can be there before, during and after an emergency to save lives and support people long term. Through our work with local organisations in these countries, we can talk directly to the people affected to provide the most useful emergency response.

Hold a church collection

You and your church can make a real difference to people affected by emergencies and disasters.

Please call 08080 005 005 or email christianaid@mosaic-fs.co.uk by 12 noon on the Thursday of the week you will hold the collection, to ensure the envelopes arrive in time.

When requesting envelopes, please do let us know which church you are ordering for and the organisation reference (OR number) if known.

Emergencies

Emergency Fund Appeal

Christian Aid has created a special Emergency Fund to ensure that when there are emergencies that don’t make the headlines in the UK, we'll be able to respond swiftly to support families in need.
