Christian Aid Week
14th — 20th May

Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.They work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. They are part of a wider movement for social justice.They provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.This year, Christian Aid Week marks 60 years of fundraising to bring an end to global poverty. British churches founded Christian Aid in 1945 to support hundreds of thousands of refugees who lost their homes and possessions in the Second World War. This vital work was needed long after the war was over, so in 1957 Christian Aid Week was launched, appealing to the public to help fund the churches' relief efforts.

60 years ago, Christians refused to stand by while people
suffered in refugee camps. People are rising to that challenge again.
