Christian Aid will have a stall in the Resources Village at Bradwell Festival. This will be a great opportunity to see the wonderful work they do, get more involved and take away some resources. Here is a bit more about the mission and values of Christian Aid:
We work globally for profound change that eradicates the causes of poverty, striving to achieve equality, dignity and freedom for all, regardless of faith or nationality. We are part of a wider movement for social justice.
We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.
Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision – an end to poverty – and we believe that vision can become a reality.
From April 2012, Christian Aid’s work will be focused around the goals and objectives identified in our corporate strategy, ‘Partnership for change – the power to end poverty’ .
Our essential purpose
- to expose the scandal of poverty
- to help in practical ways to root it out from the world
- to challenge and change structures and systems that favour the rich and powerful over the poor and marginalised.
We are an agency of our churches in Britain and Ireland and are mandated to work on relief, development and advocacy for poverty eradication. Christian Aid’s work is founded on Christian faith, inspired by hope and acts to change an unjust world through charity – a practical love and care for our neighbours.
