Christian Aid is a Christian organization that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. For more than sixty years Christian Aid has been providing relief to those hit by disaster, helping people help themselves out of poverty and speaking out against injustice. Christian Aid is the official relief and development agency of 41 British and Irish churches and works to support sustainable development, alleviate poverty, civil society and to provide disaster relief in South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Christian Aid campaigns to change the rules and systems that keep people poor, speaking out on issues such as justice in tax and trade, climate change and Third World Debt. The essential purpose of Christian Aid is to expose the scandal of poverty, to help in practical ways to root it out from the world and to challenge and change the systems that favor the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalized. Created by British and Irish churches in 1945, Christian Aid provides urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes. Their work is based on their fundamental identification with the aspirations and rights of the poor and the oppressed. Vision  Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision - an end to poverty - and they believe that vision can become a reality. What They Do Emergencies By supporting Christian Aid's emergency appeals you'll be helping people whose lives have been affected by crisis, conflict and disaster. Gender Equality For Christian Aid, unequal distribution of power and unfair abuses of power are at the heart of poverty. And the greatest, most pervasive inequality in the world is that between women and men.  HIV/AIDS and Malaria HIV, malaria and other poverty-related diseases have a devastating effect on poor countries, hampering economic development and leaving millions of children without parents.
