We support other global charities, including Christian Aid.
Christian Aid is widely known and respected for its development and relief work with people of all faiths and none. Whether bringing clean water to communities hit by drought or tackling the appalling effects of conflict, malnutrition and natural disasters, Christian Aid believes in life before death and is committed to seeing a just world now, not just in the future. For more information see www.christianaid.org.uk
