Where we're working

How We Work

Spiritual Passion

We’re Christians committed to following Jesus where the need is greatest. God has called us to serve those living in poverty, regardless of race, gender, nationality or religious belief.

We know the gospel has the power to transform lives and heal communities, we see this truth in our work every day. God isn’t giving up on the poor, neither are we.

Professional Excellence

We know that our work is too important not to do it well. We’re committed to professionalism and are recognised for our expertise in relief, development and advocacy.

We’re signatories to the Red Cross Code of Conduct and are certified against the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership Standard. That way, we’re always accountable for the work we do.

What We Have Achieved

More than 132,000 churches have been envisioned. Churches living out faith in Jesus in every aspect of life, recognising that people are more than their hunger or despair – they are made in God's image.

Over 29 million people reached through community development projects. People living in communities that can demonstrate longer term positive changes to their livelihoods, health, relationships and natural environment.

Over 12 million people supported following disasters. These are people that can face the future positively, with hope, following natural or man-made disasters – equipped with basic commodities, resources and skills.

303 unjust or harmful policies have been changed. Policies and practices changed at local, national and international levels resulting in transformation in the lives of poor and vulnerable people.
