Help build hope for people like Hauwa in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

Meet Hauwa

Hauwa Joshua lost her husband, then her health and her livelihood. Now she is doing all she can to look after her children.

The coronavirus pandemic is threatening people’s lives and livelihoods like never before, pushing families into poverty.

We’re helping people like Hauwa in Nigeria to get the food and medicine they need to get through lockdown and care for their families.

When crisis threatens, love builds hope. But to continue this vital work this winter we need your help.

Please could you help us save lives with a regular gift?

A prayer in times of isolation

‘For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come… will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.’ (Romans 8:38-39)


God of heaven and earth,

in these times of isolation,

apart from loved ones

distant from friends

away from neighbours

thank you that there is nothing

in all of creation,

not even coronavirus,

that is able to separate us from your love.


And may your love that never fails

continue to be shared

through the kindness of strangers

looking out for each other,

for neighbours near and far

all recognising our shared vulnerability,

each of us grateful for every breath,

and willing everyone to know the gift

of a full and healthy life.

Keep us all in your care. 


We made such a difference last winter. Will you help us again?

We fought poverty

in total raised to help your global neighbours

We worked together

churches came together to give, act and pray

We acted together

of you demanded the UK to help end violence in Yemen
