Build hope for communities like Imote's in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

Together, we can build hope

At the end of one of the most difficult years the world has faced, we invite you to stand together with us to build hope for the poorest and most vulnerable people. In the face of storms, drought and disease, your love builds hope.

Your love builds hope for young people like Imote in Nigeria, who has struggled to feed his young family due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Your love builds hope for mothers like Kawite in Ethiopia, a mother on the frontline of the climate crisis. 

Join us this Christmas to build hope for communities facing terrible crises across the world. 

Your support will enable us to reach communities wherever the need is greatest. 

Meet Imote

Imote Ioryue, 21, sadly lost both of his parents at a young age and was left to care for his nine siblings, alone.

Due to the devastating coronavirus pandemic, he has been unable to sell the produce from his farm, leaving him unable to buy food or basic household supplies.

Thanks to the faithful and generous giving of our supporters, Imote received cash support from Christian Aid so he can continue to support his young family.

Let's help more families like Imote's this Christmas.
