Tearfund is a Christian international aid and development agency with a 10 year vision to see 50 million people released from material and spiritual poverty through a worldwide network of 100,000 local churches.

We're following Jesus where the need is greatest, working through local churches to unlock people's potential and helping them to discover that the answer to poverty is within themselves. When disasters strike, we respond quickly. We won't stop until poverty stops.

Tearfund works in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. Our work focuses on some of the most challenging issues that face the world today, including disasters, environment and climate change, gender, health care, governance and corruption, HIV/Aids, water and sanitation, livelihoods and food security, among others.

We work by mobilising the church and providing them with training that equips poor communities to identify and use the strengths they already have to lift themselves out of poverty. We believe that it’s very important to work with locally-based partners. They hold valuable local knowledge and are aware of who are the most in need within their community, thus ensuring that aid reaches those who need it most.

We know the gospel has the power to transform lives and heal communities; we see this truth in our work every day.

Please consider leaving a gift to Tearfund in your Will to enable our work to continue for generations to come.
