A legacy to Christian Aid is so much more than a sum of money. Every legacy for our work helps us to tackle the root causes poverty as well as its effects. Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Our supporters know that their generosity helps people around the world not only to work their way out of poverty, but also to create a legacy of hope for their children and grandchildren.
Your Will can be a final expression of everything that matters to you in your life, reflecting your priorities and passions. Once loved ones have been provided for, a charitable legacy, even if just a small share of your estate, is a wonderful opportunity to provide hope and practical help to families and communities who live in poverty. Your legacy can change lives for generations to come.
If you would like to change the future, your legacy to Christian Aid will be a statement that you want to give the gift of hope to others – today and tomorrow.
In the video below, Kathy Childress, one of our supporters talks about the special gift her daughter gave to Christian Aid and how gifts in wills are transforming the lives of communities across the world.

Fede Dunois and his family lost their home in the earthquake that struck Haiti in January 2010.
His is one of 80 families in the Central Plateau area of Haiti who have now received a permanent earthquake and hurricane resistant house from Christian Aid partner, GARR (support group for refugees and repatriated persons).
They have also had the opportunity to start a new business and received training, seeds and tools to grow crops as well as a cow.
Fede describes it as a "divine gift" that has had a huge impact on his family's life, even enabling them to offer help to other vulnerable people in their community.
Over five years on, after the earthquake, GARR is still working to support people like Fede and their communities build a stronger future for themselves.
