Join us on a walk across Wales in solidarity with refugees

4-15 December 2016

To donate: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Cymorth-Cristnogol-Cymru

If you need to contact the team as they complete the walk then please use this number: 07841 921531.




There are more than 65 million refugees in our world today. In fear, they flee conflict, natural disasters and extreme poverty. In hope, they seek a safe place to call home.

This Christmas, Christian Aid Cymru will walk from Bethlehem in Carmarthenshire to Aifft (Egypt) in Denbighshire in solidarity with these people, our brothers and sisters. It will be a sponsored walk, with donations going towards the work Christian Aid does to fight poverty generally, which includes vital work in supporting refugees in many parts of the world.

We invite you to join us on the walk - either for the whole journey or for specific legs - and help us draw attention to the world's refugee crisis and raise funds for Christian Aid's work.

If you are not able to walk with us then why not sponsor us and ask your friends to sponsor us too.

Along the way there will be a variety of events held within the communities we walk through. Please join us at those events and help us promote them in your locality.
