Christian Aid Week 13th-19th May 2012


Christian Aid Week
| 13th - 19th May 2012


Thousands of churches will stand together this Christian Aid Week to speak out for change. Some 100,000 committed volunteers will go out and put their faith into action, raising funds to help some of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. This includes Britain's largest house-to-house collection - an extraordinary act of witness, demonstrating to our communities that we care about poverty and justice.

This year Christian Aid Week tells the story of remarkable change taking place in a community in rural Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone is one of the hungriest countries in the world. But helped by Christian Aid partner the Methodist Church of Sierra Leone (MCSL) some people there have found the tools to move beyond hunger and speak out for the changes they want to see.

Christian Aid currently works with 507 partner organisations in 47 countries around the world. From Sierra Leone to Tajikistan, from Kenya to Bolivia, we are helping communities to make their voices heard and look towards a brighter future.

We believe that poverty is a scandal and that it can be ended.

Once again we are collecting house-to-house in Aylesford and Eccles. If you would like to leave a donation in your envelope, please do. We appreciate everybody's support and generosity at this time.
