Our programmes

Christian Aid has programmes in 37 countries, working with 475 local, national and international partners.

We also work through wider networks, including the ACT Alliance - a coalition of 146 churches and faith-based organisations working together in more than 100 countries. 

We work on topics as diverse as emergency response, accountability, peace-building, health, land rights, tax justice and helping communities adapt to climate change.

We receive funding from UK aid, Irish Aid, Scottish Government, European Commission, USAID and other key donors and partners, which enables us to make a large-scale, deep and lasting difference to people’s lives. This section highlights just some of our programmes from around the world.
