£10,000 would fund a sand dam to supply fresh clean water to a village in Ethiopia or improve roads in Palestine to improve farmers’ access to their crops and markets.

Christian Aid never gives money diectly to any country, but supplies tools, support and pays for projects to eradicate povery around the world, she points out.

On behalf of Christian Aid she sends a big thanks to local organisers, collecters, treasurers and everyone who gave donations this year.
