"Reaching people for Christ: helping thousands of people out of poverty into a sustainable future"

What we do

CRH 2003-10

Building hope for impoverished people and communities

Working across Europe's six poorest countries, we stand side by side with families, children and elderly people to help them move towards self-sufficiency. This year we will bring hope to over 20,000 children, around 9,000 families and more than 150,000 elderly people. We are committed enabling long-term, sustainable change through our sponsorship programs, family and child support programs and community care.

How we work

We meet the needs of the whole person through five core priorities:

• Spiritual development 
• Education
• Emotional care (counseling and building self-esteem)
• Material support
• Long-term sustainability.

Taking advantage of over 50 years knowledge and experience, we tackle poverty through strong community relationships. We make a difference through our neighbourhood network of over 4,000 volunteers, close partnerships with local churches and exceptional relationships with governments.
