We support Christian Aid, a Christian charity that is working to bring an end to poverty around the world by tackling its root causes as well as its effects.
Although Christian Aid week has now ended, it is not too late to Donate now to our 'All Saints' Christian Aid e-envelope
In the last year:
The campaign for Christian Aid week this year focuses on Malawi, soaring costs are affecting people in the UK and around the world - families in Malawi are particularly paying the price of this global crisis. Food, fuel, fertiliser and school fees have doubled in price in the last 12 months and hard-working farmers are seeing their harvests fail as the climate crisis brings increasingly erratic weather. The impact of the recent Cyclone Freddy in Malawi has been devastating - floods have washed away crops and more than 500,000 people have been displaced - hundreds losing their lives. There is also the increased risk of disease, such as malaria and cholera in the immediate aftermath. This cyclone is the equivalent of a full North American hurricane season, it is the longest lasting cyclone on record, lasting 34 days. CA have been responding to the immediate need by providing mobile clinics, mosquito nets, temporary toilets and bathrooms, food and cash but planning for the future is also important.
Someone who CA have already helped is Esther. Esther grows some truly special pigeon peas on her farm - with them she can make delicious bread, support her children's dreams and give her adorable grandsons a happy future. But she wasn't always able to support her family so easily - see Esther's story here:
