Northern Ireland news

This autumn, N.Irish supporters gave nearly £250,000 to support people desperately fleeing the conflict in Syria. This money has gone to support Christian organisations like Heart for Lebanon who are bringing help and hope to 26,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

Camille, the Heart for Lebanon Director, has recorded this short, powerful film.

‘We don't just provide medicine, food and blankets to refugees' says Camille. 'We are there to build loving relationship with every refugee and help them move from despair to Christian hope'.

Local Nepalese Christians and community members have also made this short, moving film to show their incredible appreciation for your support. Since May, our local Christian partners and churches have been able to provide shelter for over 75,000 people, emergency food for 100,000 and counselling for 5,515 people.

    Ruan Pienaar’s Final Try in NI

    When Tearfund ambassador Ruan Pienaar came to us with the idea of a cycle along the North Coast, we knew he was on to something good. Clubbing together with Ulster teammates Craig Gilroy and Rob Herring along with another 30 cyclists from around Northern Ireland, Ruan’s final try in NI became the Cycle for Freedom: a demanding 90KM challenge from Coleraine to Ballycastle and back - all to raise £90k to help protect children at risk of trafficking, disease and disaster.
