Our Target

Christian Aid

Christian Aid is an agency of the churches in Ireland and the UK. We work wherever the need is greatest – irrespective of religion or race.

Christian Aid works in more than 50 countries with over 600 partners.

Because we believe in strengthening people to find their own solutions to the problems they face, we support local organisations, which are best placed to understand local needs. We also give help on the ground through 16 overseas offices.

We strive for a new world transformed by an end to poverty and we campaign to change the rules that keep people poor.

Based upon our Christian principles, Christian Blind Mission (CBM) exists to cure and prevent blindness, deafness and other disabilities.

We also support blind, visually impaired and otherwise disabled people in those areas of greatest need worldwide. We do this through medical intervention, education and rehabilitation, emergency relief and in capacity building through training, research, advocacy and awareness creation.

In order to achieve this we seek to generate income from individuals and organisations and by developing partnerships internationally.
