Tearfund are a Christian organsation working around the world to lift communities in a great many important areas. Areas of their work include disaster relief, helping communities lift themselves out of poverty, healthcare, water and sanitation and many others besides.
Tearfund's work is worldwide, including Africa, South America Asia and the UK.
St Andrew's has supported Tearfund's work for many years. When we began our building project we decided that we should tithe (give 10% of) all of our fundraising. Half of this tithe was, and still is, given to Tearfund.
