Christian Aid Ireland is an international aid and development agency of the Protestant Churches of Great Britain and Ireland.
As part of the Christian Aid family, we work across 37 countries to support poor and marginalised people, whatever their beliefs, sexuality, gender or ethnicity, to lift themselves out of poverty.
Christian Aid Ireland has a special focus on 22 core countries, where we concentrate our efforts to best effect.
As a Christian organisation of seven sponsoring churches, we believe every one of us deserves respect, care, and the opportunity to live a life of peace, dignity and worth.
In a world with such wealth as ours, no one should go without food, shelter, security or any of the other basics we all need.
Christian Aid Ireland works for and with people of all faiths and none, as well as with churches and other organisations, to promote sustainable development, strive for social justice and pursue our vision of a world without poverty.
We do this by tackling both the causes and the symptoms of poverty so that everyone can achieve equality, dignity and freedom.
Together with our supporters and partners, we aim:
- to expose poverty throughout the world
- to help in practical ways to end it
- to highlight, challenge and change the structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.
