Poverty is political – there’s no way round that. When people go hungry, yet there is food enough to feed them, then something is wrong. When people are poor at a time when there has never been more wealth, we must ask why and who is responsible, and campaign for leaders to change their policies.

Christian Aid is never party political. It is interested only in pressing for policies that can best help the poor – not in who makes them. What it cares about is eradicating poverty and injustice and the causes of these.

To make this happen, Christian Aid will talk to, and challenge, whoever it needs to.

Christian Aid’s ground-breaking work began in 1945, when the charity was founded by British and Irish churches to help refugees following the Second World War.

For more than 75 years, Christian Aid has provided humanitarian relief and long-term development support for poor communities worldwide, while highlighting suffering, tackling injustice and championing people’s rights.

Together with its supporters and partners Christian Aid aims:

  • to expose poverty throughout the world
  • to help in practical ways to end it
  • to highlight, challenge and change the structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.

We stand together. For dignity. For equality. For justice.
