Under the current circumstance, sadly, house to house and other face to face fundraising events such as breakfasts and lunches cannot go ahead this Christian Aid Week.
Instead, Christian Aid Week is moving online! We are building a vibrant, virtual Christian Aid Week so you can take part with our online community. We would love you to join in to show love for our neighbours near and far, as a global family. Christian Aid Week gives us an opportunity to celebrate and share the life-saving work Christian Aid undertakes with your support.

Christian Aid and our partners already have experience of limiting the spread of infection during the Ebola crisis, and we will build on this experience to continue to stand together with communities living in poverty during this period. If infection rates start to develop as they are in Europe, then people in poorer countries will be hit even harder. Many are already living with reduced health resilience because of extreme poverty, or in overcrowded humanitarian camps and in countries which do not have the healthcare infrastructures needed to combat widespread disease. We will be working on the ground to help prepare communities to limit the impact of Covid-19. Please pray for us in this vital work.
People in poorer countries with already fragile health systems, will be even harder hit, making every single aspect of our work more important. You can support our work around the world by making an online donation, or by setting up a Direct Debit to support us on a monthly basis.
We are praying for all those affected by this new virus, both here and overseas, for all those working on the frontline and for wisdom for our leaders. We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves. During this challenging time, we all need to take seriously the science and advice being offered, remaining calm but vigilant.
