Our work on conflict

War tears lives apart. It leaves people broken, brutalised, grief-stricken, afraid. Around the world, Christian Aid helps people piece their lives back together.

What we do

Anoon from South Sudan

We support those in most urgent need with the essentials: medical care, water, food, shelter, blankets.

When the confusion of war leaves children lost and alone, we work to reunite them with their families.

Long term support

After the fighting stops, we're still there, helping communities walk the long road to recovery: from building new homes where families can feel safe at night, to providing the expert support they need to deal with traumatic experiences.

We strive to promote peaceful, effective alternatives to violence and armed conflict by tackling the structural causes of poverty and conflict. Find out more about our work around the world.

How you can help

For a growing number of people across the world, the horror of war is a part of daily life.

Right now, fuelled by the devastating violence in both Syria and the South Sudan, war is driving more and more people from their homes.

Christian Aid is a Christian organisation that insists the world can and must be swiftly changed to one where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty.

We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance where need is great, tackling the effects of poverty as well as its root causes.

We are an agency of the churches in Britain and Ireland and we work with anyone who needs help, regardless of faith or nationality.

We work with and through local partners overseas: churches, ecumenical bodies, local non-governmental organisations and movements who have common values and competence in poverty eradication.

We have an integrated approach to poverty eradication – working on humanitarian relief, long-term development, specific advocacy issues and campaigns for change and influence.
