In these challenging and uncertain times, Tearfund is doing all it can to continue serving people in poverty. This is a reminder of what remains constant amid the coronavirus crisis:

Our vision stays the same: to see people freed from poverty, living transformed lives and reaching their God-given potential. We won't stop until poverty stops.

Our faith stays the same: faith is what motivates us to tackle poverty and injustice and what drives us on to do better. We pray as we make decisions, and for one another as well as the communities we work with. All our work is rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus.

Our God stays the same: it’s written in the Bible. ‘Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. (Psalm 90:2). And, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever’ (Hebrews 13:8). 

Our hope stays the same: ‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit’ (Romans 15:13).

Please continue to join with us in praying, giving and speaking up for those living in poverty.
