Where It's Needed Most

Where It's Needed Most



Tearfund partners with local agencies that understand the needs of their communities, and are in the best position to develop sustainable responses that can break the cycle of poverty. This gift helps our partners to support communities, whatever they are facing.

How your gift helps

Tearfund’s partners are faithfully at work in some of the hardest places in our world, where multiple crises converge and communities simultaneously face the worst impacts of challenges like poverty, conflict and drought. They may also face oppression, discrimination and displacement, all of which exacerbate poverty and make it harder for communities to build their resilience.

Tearfund partners with local organisations which understand the needs of the communities they work in, and are in the best position to develop sustainable responses, for example through health care, education, water and sanitation work and mental health support.
