Donate now

Your support will make a huge difference to struggling families across the world.

How often would you like to donate?

If you can manage it, a smaller monthly donation can make even more of a difference by enabling us to plan more long‑term projects.

Your generosity is changing lives

Poverty is not God’s plan. You are. From providing food and shelter to people fleeing conflict to equipping communities to start their own development projects, your gift will transform lives and play a part in ending extreme poverty and injustice around the world.

Why give monthly?

A monthly donation will provide long-term support for communities and enable even more people to lift themselves out of poverty. It also helps us plan more ambitious projects and use your money as effectively as possible.
