Hope in Hard Places

Hope in Hard Places



Support life-giving work in some of the world’s most complex environments. This gift supports Christian partners who work courageously and tirelessly for hope and transformation in communities where people face the extremes of poverty and injustice.

How your gift helps

There are places in our world where people experience the most severe aspects of poverty and injustice: not only a lack of food or income, but oppression, persecution, discrimination and violence. Tearfund partners with local organisations that are faithfully and courageously present in these “hard places”.

Abdul*, who comes from a village in Afghanistan’s Kabul province, has been unable to work since the political change in his country in 2021. “Now living and finding food materials for my family is getting so hard,” he says. One of Tearfund’s partners has delivered emergency relief in Abdul’s village. “I am very happy to receive food, hygiene kits and blankets … for my family.”

This Useful Gift celebrates a real story of transformation that represents the community development work of Tearfund’s partners around the world. Your purchase of this gift is a valuable contribution to this work.
