Responding to Disasters
We bring swift and effective support to disaster-affected communities in a strategic and well-planned way. We then build long-term relationships with local churches and partners so that communities become increasingly resilient to future disasters in a way that is environmentally and economically sustainable.
We work with local churches and communities to reduce poverty in a way that is sustainable and holistic. We strengthen individuals, families and entire communities – their health, livelihoods and relationships – and build resilience so they can cope with unforeseen events.
Envisioning the global church
We’re passionate about seeing the church embrace its God-given calling to address poverty and injustice – as a global family, congregations and individuals. We equip and envision local churches to become powerful agents of change, so they can help people and communities to flourish.
Changing unjust policies
We urge those in power to make sure their policies deliver justice and tackle poverty in vulnerable communities. Lobbying at local, national and international levels, we speak up alongside people living in poverty, holding governments to account and challenging structural inequalities and injustices.
Our supporters are vital to all we do at Tearfund, enabling us to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. We want to build strong relationships and reassure our supporters we will be good stewards of their generous gifts.
