Christian Aid
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.

Nick's CtCT Challenge

Nick Simon

My page:

I cycled 8,000 miles independently from Cairo in Egypt to Cape Town in South Africa in 2016. The CtCT Challenge continues during June - Oct 2017 with me cycling 2,000 miles from Cork in Ireland to Camden Town in London and climbing the five peaks.

Christian Aid works to reduce extreme poverty and social injustice and supports people of all faiths and none. Any money you give will be used to support Christian Aid’s partners in Africa. If you can donate £1 or more that would be fantastic. £3 could help buy a mosquito net in Africa and save a young life. £5 could give two farmers drought-resistant seeds and a future. Around £30 could transform the life of someone like Amarech who I met in Arba Minch, southern Ethiopia and has been able to set up a small business making and selling injera. Injera looks like a large spongy pancake and is a staple food in Ethiopia.

Please click for Gift Aid when you go through the donation process if you are a UK taxpayer. This will generate an extra 25% for Christian Aid.

Thank you so much for your support.
