The Christian Aid organisation is a charity that works in more than 60 countries. It was originally set up in 1945 by churches in the United Kingdom and Ireland to help people in need - regardless of their race or religion - to improve their own lives and to tackle the causes of poverty and injustice. Christian Aid do not give money to governments. Instead their funds are channelled into local community groups and church organisations that can help those in need directly.
Nearly one quarter of all Christian Aid funding comes from money raised during Christian Aid Week, and each year the people of St Andrew's are actively involved in fundraising events in support of this.
