The groundbreaking work of Christian Aid began in 1945, when it was founded by British and Irish churches to help refugees following the Second World War. The charity has since grown to become a major international development agency.

For more than 70 years, Christian Aid has provided humanitarian relief and long-term development support for poor communities worldwide, while highlighting suffering, tackling injustice and championing people’s rights. 

Christian Aid works for and with people of all faiths and none.

In the camps, it was Christian Aid that sent the parcels…feeding us for two-and-a-half years, and I never forgot it. Christian Aid helped me to survive and I feel I owe my life to Christian Aid. I vowed there and then to do my best as long as I live, and I’m still doing it
