Tearfund is a Christian international aid and development agency working globally to end poverty and injustice, and to restore dignity and hope in some of the world’s poorest communities. Tearfund operates in more than fifty countries around the world. As well as being present in disaster situations and recovery through our response teams, they speak out on behalf of poor people on the national and international stage by petitioning governments, campaigning for justice and raising the profile of key poverty issues wherever they can. They work tirelessly to help communities around the world escape the very worst effects of poverty and disaster. And they believe that the same people facing these troubles, also have the best idea as to how they can overcome them. Tearfund listens: helping people to rise out of their poverty, utilising their resourcefulness and determination. Tearfund works alongside local churches and other locally-based organisations to help realise these plans for a better future.

God has called them to serve those living in poverty, regardless of race, gender, nationality or religious belief.
