Thank you! A thousand times thank you!

This Christian Aid Week, more than a thousand churches up and down the country came together with Christian Aid Scotland for the world’s poorest people. They held house-to-house, church and street collections and hosted Big Brekkies, coffee mornings and book sales.
 
I anticipate that when all has been counted, we will find that Christian Aid Week 2018 has raised almost £1.5 million in Scotland.
 
Christian Aid is not only a charity, but - at its heart - a justice movement. Together we expose the root causes of poverty and, through campaigning and advocacy, sustainable international development and immediate humanitarian aid, we respond in practical, tangible and transformational ways.
 
This year's 'Together, we are stronger than the storms' theme focused on the issue of internally displaced people and is a live example of the transformation possible through our partnerships here in Scotland and across our planet home.
 
I would like to thank you, and everyone who joined with you, for enabling us to continue to stand together with, and offer support to, global neighbours like Vilia.
 
When the storms came, Vilia welcomed and sheltered others by creating a 'chain of solidarity’. Together with our global neighbours in the thousands of communities where we work and in partnership with the hundreds of local organisations who help us, we can build a chain of solidarity and create a world where everybody has a safe place to call home.
