Now is the time to reset. It begins with our faith: Reset for a better 'normal'.

The end of poverty begins with today.

Jesus proclaimed that through him, ‘today’ was God’s new day. It still is. Now is the time to reset – and we each have a part to play.

— Luke 4:16-21

Now is the Time

Today, our world faces the extraordinary COVID-19 crisis that threatens to undo years of hard-won progress.

Today, as many as 163 million more people are on the edge of tipping into poverty.

This is no ordinary moment.

2020 compounded the crises faced by the world, and it is imperative that the trajectory changes.

That’s why today we are inviting you to become a Tearfund Monthly giver.

Monthly giving works powerfully to bring access and opportunity today and into the future for families like Adanech’s.

Adanech's story

After fleeing her hometown in Ethiopia due to violence, Adanech (pictured) and her family lost everything they had. Her husband then became ill and as she struggled to make a living, she was forced to send three of her five children to live with her brother.

Restoration began when she joined a community support group run by Tearfund’s local partner. Now able to access vital financial support, Adanech took out a loan to start her own business baking injera (flatbread). Now her children have enough food to eat.

In a very real way, becoming a part of this group turned Adanech’s life around as she found a supportive and caring community. These groups play an important role in strengthening vulnerable communities and building resilience.

Yet today, the COVID-19 pandemic is making it harder for Adanech and others like her to come together safely and continue their journey out of poverty.

Amid the challenges of this pandemic, Tearfund has been helping our partners to support people in heavily impacted communities, by providing food, personal protective equipment, hygiene kits, training, counselling and other much needed support.

With a monthly gift, Tearfund can continue to support partners in this life-changing work.
