When a community lifts itself out of poverty, everything changes. Tearfund’s call is to go where the need is greatest and help people discover that the answer to poverty lies within themselves. We long for new life and a new sense of worth for people. When disasters strike, we respond quickly. We do whatever it takes to end poverty and rebuild poor communities.
