Christian Aid Week

The climate emergency is one of the greatest injustices we face. Together we stop this climate crisis.

This climate crisis hurts us all. But people living in poverty fight the worst of it every day.

From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means people like Rose are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water.

Your gift could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.

Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives.

Together we stop this climate crisis.

Rose's story

Rose is caught in a cycle of climate chaos. From severe drought to flooding, extreme weather robs her of what she needs to survive: a reliable source of water.

Find out about Rose's story and learn how you can stand with people like Rose and help them fight the climate crisis.

Florence's story

A woman sings a deep, joyful tune. Her song lifts the spirits of the other women on the farm. This is Florence.

Florence could easily have been defeated. But Florence is a fighter, and she shows the women in her farming group that they can be fighters too.

Find out how Christian Aid Week donations like yours provided Florence with strength to withstand even the most unpredictable weather.
