A Sustainable Future

$35


Today, our world faces the extraordinary COVID-19 crisis that threatens to undo years of hard-won progress.

Today, as many as 163 million¹ more people are on the edge of tipping into poverty.

This is no ordinary moment.

2020 compounded the twin crises of COVID-19 and climate change, and it is imperative that the trajectory changes.

In Luke 4:16-21, Jesus proclaimed that through him, ‘today’ was God’s new day. It still is. In Jesus, the end of poverty begins with today. Now is the time to reset – and we each have a part to play.

That’s why today we are inviting you to give to A Sustainable Future.

How your gift helps:

With your gift towards A Sustainable Future, Tearfund can continue to provide communities with initiatives that focus on sustainable agriculture, disaster resilience and food security to help vulnerable communities build their climate-resilience.

When you purchase the gift of A Sustainable Future, it does two things:

  • Supports Tearfund’s partners who work with vulnerable communities as they adapt and build their climate-resilience through initiatives that focus on things like sustainable agriculture, improving access to and storage of safe water, disaster resilience and food security.
  • Contributes to Tearfund’s advocacy work with the church in Australia, empowering people to speak out, live differently and be leaders in the movement towards a more just and sustainable world. Motivated by God’s call to care for creation, Tearfund equips Christians in Australia to take action through local and global campaigns, and amplify the voices of those most vulnerable to climate-related injustice.
