Prayer for Lebanon

God, our refuge in times of trouble We pray for our brothers and sisters in Beirut today. Lord, be with the emergency services as they battle to help the thousands injured. Lord, hold those who have lost loved ones in the palm of your hand. Lord, we pray your provision for poor and marginalised communities who face an even more uncertain future. Lord, we pray for wisdom for leaders as they make difficult decisions.  Lord, open our hearts - may they be full of compassion for the suffering we see. Stir us to action. In the tragedy of loss, We pray your comfort. In the chaos and injury, We pray your calm and divine healing. In the devastation and the heartbreak, We pray your peace. We pray that in the despair that lies amid the rubble of the explosion There will be glimmers of hope and life.

Christian Aid Nigeria programme strategy: 2019-2026

An overview of the vision, mission and strategy of the Christian Aid Nigeria programme for 2019-2026. For the next seven years, we will continue Standing Together with the most marginalised and vulnerable people to ensure everyone has the opportunity to live a full life and poverty is eradicated. Our essential purpose as an organisation is to see an end to poverty, and Christian Aid Nigeria is committed to seeing this become a reality. This new strategy will guide our activities and help us tackle the power imbalance that perpetuates poverty in Nigeria.

Keeping hope alive: Christian Aid's work on peace - Impact study 2019

Without an explicit focus on peace, there can be no sustainable development. This Impact Study, and accompanying case studies, share some of our story of taking peace seriously. Throughout our work in providing humanitarian assistance and long-term development support, it has become clear that we cannot ignore the reality of violence. Peace and justice matter to us as a faith-based organisation and we seek to respond to real challenges of building peace with integrity, respect, courage and hope. From Violence to Peace lays down our hopeful vision that a more peaceful reality free from poverty, violence and injustice is possible. This study shares key examples of impact and some things we’ve learnt along the way. Key facts In 2016, more countries experienced violent conflict than at any time in nearly 30 years. If current trends persist, by 2030 – the horizon set by the Sustainable Development Goals – more than half of the world’s poor will be living in countries affected by high levels of violence. (OECD). Violent conflict has spiked since 2010, with two billion people now living in countries where development outcomes are affected by fragility, conflict, and violence (World Bank, 2018). Much of this violence is due to recurring violence and protracted conflicts. It is estimated that 135 different countries have experienced conflict recurrence – a pattern that is deepening. We stand in solidarity with our local partners – households, community organisations and local leadership who live through conflict and violence first hand. We want governments, faith institutions and communities to want and work for peace in their societies and to keep hope alive. Peace is not something fluffy and aspirational. Peacebuilding can and does work.

The market garden - growing sustainable businesses with women farmers

Christian Aid and its partners have launched a project called Making Agriculture a Business, which aims to transform small-scale farmers into champions of economic development. Alongside the main area of work, which is Making Agriculture a Business, Christian Aid Scotland supporters can invest in a complementary project called The Market Garden. The Market Garden will be a community inspired initiative which supports women and disabled farmers to ensure that their produce makes a profit.
