What We Do

Christian Aid in India

Christian Aid has supported local organisations in India for more than five decades, initially providing relief and rehabilitation to people affected by natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and cyclones.

India is often referred to as a sub-continent due to its geographical size, diversity and population of over a billion. Its diversity is reflected in its many ethnic groups, languages, cultures and faiths.

It is hailed as the world’s largest democracy and an emerging global power, but the powerful interplay of caste, ethnicity, patriarchy and feudalism create deep-rooted divisions that deny equal rights and opportunities to all.

We are currently updating this page and further information will be added soon.
