Of every dollar entrusted to us

Churches are mobilized

We’re excited to see churches start to understand the potential God has placed in them to address poverty and injustice and become powerful agents of change in their local community. 

Communities are transformed

Your donation works through local churches to make sure transformation takes place in the very heart of the community. Through Tearfund, you are helping communities build resilience to shocks and stresses, work for peace and unity, and build better futures for themselves and others.

Emergency needs met

When disaster strikes, we respond swiftly. Your donations will help affected communities for the long term, working through local churches and partners to help people become resilient and thrive. 

Societal change

We call on people in positions of power and influence to ensure that their policies bring positive change for vulnerable communities, including those that are hardest to reach. We equip and empower communities to speak out and stand with them in holding governments accountable and lobbying them to address structural inequalities and injustices.
