Why should I get involved?

Poverty isn’t going to end itself – each one of us has a part to play. Run with Team Tearfund and together, let's finish poverty for good.

Run for people like Tamam

By fundraising with us, you’ll be changing the lives of people living in desperate need. People like Tamam.

Armed conflict forced Tamam and her family from their home in Syria. Now they live in a cramped, dangerous slum in Lebanon. Life is hard, but there is hope. Tearfund’s local partner is in the heart of the settlement, providing schooling, trauma counselling and healthcare. Thanks to their support, Tamam can dream of a better life again.

£252 could help to provide three families like Tamam’s with life-saving support to rebuild their lives.

Poverty destroys lives. Join the fightback.
