Christian Aid believes in life before death, working for and with people of all faiths and none. Founded in 1945, Christian Aid is an agency of the churches in Britain and Ireland mandated to work on relief, development and advocacy for poverty eradication. Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, of freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision – an end to poverty – and believes that this vision can become a reality. A complex international organisation, we have an income in excess of £110m and work in 37 countries, supporting poor and marginalized people to lift themselves out of poverty. We do this by tackling both the causes and the symptoms of poverty so that everyone can achieve equality, dignity and freedom.
