We’re collecting photos of supporters from across the globe to show world leaders that it’s time to #CancelTheDebt.

How to get involved

  • Take a selfie, or ask a friend to take a photo of you creatively displaying the words 'Cancel The Debt'
  • If possible, show where you are based eg. by a town or street sign, or notable feature.
  • Share your image on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #CancelTheDebt. Be sure to tag @christian_aid on Twitter so we can find your photos.
  • You could also tag the finance minister in your country, so they know you support the campaign – for the UK that’s the Chancellor, @RishiSunak
  • If you don’t have a social media account, email your photo to us at

By adding your face and voice, you’re part of a movement of people around the world calling for the poorest countries to have a fighting chance to survive the coronavirus pandemic.
