Our work in Ireland

What’s Christian Aid Ireland all about? Here’s what we stand for, what we do and the church and government partners that support our work.

Who we are

Christian Aid Ireland is an aid agency working to overcome poverty in some of the world’s poorest communities in around 50 countries. At home and overseas we campaign to change the structures that keep people poor, challenging inequality and injustice.

Supporting churches and volunteers

Our work at home includes supporting the local volunteers who make Christian Aid Ireland tick – particularly in the run-up to the big annual fundraising effort in Christian Aid Week each May.

We preach or speak about Christian Aid’s work to groups, in schools and in churches. We recruit and support campaigners, Christian Aid teachers and other volunteers. And we organise events and host visitors from Christian Aid Ireland’s overseas partner organisations.

Church organisations

Christian Aid Ireland is the official aid and international development agency of seven churches in Ireland. It is also part of ACT International (Action by Churches Together), the worldwide ecumenical network for emergency relief.

Working with Irish Aid

Christian Aid Ireland also works in close partnership with Irish Aid, the division of the Irish government’s Department of Foreign Affairs that supports international efforts to tackle poverty.

Our work in Colombia, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Burundi, Angola and Afghanistan – places where the consequences of bitter conflict add to the burdens of poverty and inequality – is a particular focus of Irish Aid’s support and involvement.
