Church Representative: Brenda Wilkinson

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 United Mission to Nepal who have been instrumental in helping with the government scheme to provide Covid-19 vaccinations to people in remote areas and supporting people through the pandemic with food, hygiene supplies and healthcare.
