What we do

Christian Aid Ireland supports communities to overcome injustice, respond to humanitarian emergencies, campaign for change, and helps people claim the services and rights they are entitled to.

Christian Aid Ireland aims to end poverty and injustice worldwide by focusing on seven key areas – see below. This involves working in partnership with local organisations, as well as with governments and the private sector.

Our work includes helping people to:

  • claim their rights and access services such as healthcare and education
  • overcome violence and build peace in their communities and rebuild their lives after conflict
  • ensure they are not discriminated against for any reason
  • stand up for equality for women, prevent gender-based violence and provide support for survivors
  • become more resilient to disasters such as drought, climate change and hurricanes 
  • advocate in Ireland and overseas against corporate tax dodging and demand that companies pay their fair share
