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.

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 £100m and work across the globe, supporting poor and marginalised 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.
