Christian Aid Week is coming

There has been quite a buzz in the Christian Aid offices these last few weeks. Supporters have been ordering their resources, popping in to pick them up and sharing their ideas and enthusiasm. Our staff have been dotting all around the country to talk, not only about Christian Aid Week, but also about the transformational partnership we share all year long. We are days away from our biggest fundraising and awareness-raising week of the year.
 
Last year, Scotland raised around £1.4 million during Christian Aid Week. Thanks to your donations, we helped improve the sanitation and eating facilities at refugee camps in Greece, and funded a range of work across the world.
 
Thanks to your passion for people forced to leave their homes, we were spurred on to look further at the issue of displacement, and to call for the United Nations to pass resolutions to give internally displaced people the same rights and protection as refugees.
 
And in this current climate, when it feels like we're jostled on every side by scandal, division and uncertainty, we have a real sense that we are gearing up to a week of hope.
 
Will you hope with us?
 
Not a wishful thinking sort of hope, but a determination to stand together. A commitment that does not cross its fingers and hope someone will do something, but one that gives, acts and prays until dignity is restored and justice thrives. This Christian Aid Week, let's stand together.
