Poverty does more than exhaust, starve, trap and kill people. It destroys their sense of worth, limits their horizons, robs people of the chance to reach their full potential. Tearfund’s call is to follow Jesus where the need is greatest. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities. We work through local churches, because they’re Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person – and the whole community – inside and out.
OUR WORK IN NIGERIA
Disaster risk reduction
In North East Nigeria Tearfund is working through local partner CRUDAN to offer humanitarian and emergency assistance to communities affected by the Boko Haram insurgency. This is done through cash grants, to meet their immediate food needs and to help them rebuild their agriculture businesses, and through training in climate-friendly farming.
This work will enable 300,000 internally displaced people
