CHRISTIAN AID we would like to thank those who contributed to Christian Aid last year. The total was £15245.87. £13016.11 went to the Breaking the Barriers Appeal. For every pound donated the EU gives £4. This increases the total given to £54294.20. Christian Aid has more than 70 years’ experience of working in partnership to support communities to thrive. We tackle the root causes of poverty so that people all over the world are strengthened against future knocks. If disasters happen, we get people to help straight away. We stand together for dignity, equality, and justice. We work in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean working through local organisations who are best placed to understand and help the communities we support. We also engage closely with governments and the private sector. We value your prayers and continued financial support.
