Two smiling women in church

Will you hold a church collection?

The church founded Christian Aid Week to fight for equality, dignity and freedom for all. By holding a church collection this year, you can support some of our most vulnerable sisters and brothers – like the communities in Sierra Leone that we're focussing on this Christian Aid Week.

A lack of healthcare means Sierra Leone is the world’s most dangerous place to become a mum. Tragically, 10 women will die today from giving birth there.

Help people like Jebbeh

As Jebbeh's baby grows, it’s not joy that fills her heart but fear. When her sister Fatmata went into labour, she set out on foot to hospital. The road was long and she struggled to keep walking under the baking sun. She never made it. Jebbeh told us: ‘My sister was crying out with hunger. She died on the side of the road. She never gave birth.’

As her due date looms closer, Jebbeh fears she could be next. ‘I pray, when that day comes, God will help me to deliver safely, so that I can have a bouncing baby and I’ll be healthy,’ she says. Together we can fight for a just, equal world for people like Jebbeh.
