Christian Aid - 75th Birthday Celebrations

This year Christian Aid should be celebrating its 75th birthday. Created by UK Churches (including ours!) in the aftermath of World War Two, it has gone on to help millions of people in the poorest parts of the globe.

The threats caused by Climate Change & the Covid-19 Pandemic have meant celebrations will be muted but the focus and need continues to be on both issues.

Christian Aid Week (10th–16th May) is a main source of income for Christian Aid but the pandemic has meant most local fund raising activities are delayed or cancelled. You can still donate…locally we have a Just Giving page with a somewhat long address :

or on the national Christian Aid website:

https://donate.christianaid.org.uk/Donate/Step/1?ApproachCode=A002958

and you can find out much more about Christian Aid Week below, including how the action from the Christian Aid partner, the Anglican Development Services Eastern, in Kenya is helping alleviate drought.
