Tearfund is a Christian charity that partners with churches in more than 50 of the world’s poorest countries, tackling poverty through sustainable development, responding to disasters, and challenging injustice. Tearfund believes that an end to extreme poverty is possible.
In 2018, a group from St. John’s visited Tearfund’s partner, World Relief Cambodia, and saw the work being done to help poor communities through improved agriculture, savings and loan schemes, healthcare training and by raising awareness of the dangers of trafficking.
More recently, we have been linked with the United Mission to Nepal, which has been working there since 1954 with a mission to ‘pursue justice for all, to address the root causes of poverty and to make Christ known by word and life. For more about UMN, watch the video on our YouTube channel.
St. John’s is now part of Tearfund’s World of Difference initiative. As a result, we receive regular updates from different countries, which show how Tearfund’s work with local churches is transforming whole communities.
