Why is my support important?
Christian Aid does extremely valuable work around the world, helping many out of poverty and towards a more sustainable future, and responding to crises such as earthquakes.
This year, the needs are even more urgent, with Coronavirus set to be an even greater challenge in developing countries than it is here.
Meanwhile Christian Aid is being deprived of a major source of income, its annual house-to-house collection.
So we hope you will be moved to be even more generous than usual in making personal donations, and in supporting and enjoying the fund-raising activities that remain open to us.
