Christian Aid Ireland

What we do

Christian Aid Ireland is an international aid and development agency of the Protestant Churches of Great Britain and Ireland. We are determined to end poverty and injustice worldwide with the help of our supporters and partners. As part of the Christian Aid family, we work across 40 countries to support poor and marginalised people, whatever their beliefs, sexuality, gender or ethnicity, to lift themselves out of poverty.

As a Christian organisation, we believe every one of us deserves respect, care, and the opportunity to live a life of peace, dignity and worth. In a world with such wealth as ours, no one should go without food, shelter, security or any of the other basics we all need. Christian Aid Ireland works for and with people of all faiths and none, as well as with churches and other organisations, to promote sustainable development, strive for social justice and pursue our vision of a world without poverty. We do this by tackling both the causes and the symptoms of poverty so that everyone can achieve equality, dignity and freedom.

Gifts in Wills

A gift in your Will to Christian Aid is so much more than a sum of money.  Every gift for our work helps us to tackle the root causes of poverty as well as its effects. Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Our supporters know that their generosity helps people around the world not only to work their way out of poverty, but also to create a legacy of hope for their children and grandchildren.

Your Will can be a final expression of everything that matters to you in your life, reflecting your priorities and passions. Once loved ones have been provided for, a charitable legacy, even if just a small share of your estate, is a wonderful opportunity to provide hope and practical help to families and communities who live in poverty.  Your gift can change lives for generations to come.

If you would like to change the future, a gift in your Will to Christian Aid will be a statement that you want to give the gift of hope to others – today and tomorrow.

Concern Worldwide

What we do

Concern Worldwide is an international humanitarian organisation specialised in tackling hunger with the most vulnerable people in the world’s poorest places. Hunger affects everything for the people we work with. We believe no one should have to live with hunger and the damage it does.

Founded in Ireland in 1968, we have over 40 years of experience using our expertise and local knowledge to help people and communities develop their own lasting solutions to hunger. Our integrated and participatory programmes tackle hunger from all angles to ensure change is sustainable and communities become more resilient to future crises.

Gifts in Wills

Hunger is the world’s biggest health problem, but it is also the most solvable. Gifts in wills are crucial to make sure our essential life-saving work continues for future generations. These very special gifts help us plan ahead, respond quickly to emergencies, commit to long-term projects tackling the root causes of hunger and campaign to change the bigger picture.

Writing a will is an important way to take care of your loved ones and they should always come first. It is also a wonderful opportunity to continue your lifelong support for a cause you feel passionate about and to ensure your values of concern for others and determination to end hunger live on.

After taking care of your loved ones, please consider remembering Concern in your will. Whatever the size of your gift, you can be certain that it will make a huge difference to the world’s most vulnerable people, helping them free themselves from hunger.

Self Help Africa (previously War on Want NI)

Long Business Description:

Self Help Africa (previously War on Want NI)

What we do

In 2018 War on Want NI, Northern Ireland’s oldest independent international development agency working in sub-Saharan Africa for over 50 years merged with Gorta-Self Help Africa to increase our impact and reach even more people.

War on Want NI’s dedication to helping the most vulnerable in the communities where we work now continues under our new name Self Help Africa.

We do this by working closely with local groups and organisations to identify the poorest communities in need of support and spending time identifying their specific needs, before designing a sustainable project around these needs.

Self Help Africa helps subsistence farmers there to increase their harvests, protect the environment and sell their produce in thriving markets at the right time and at the right price. We provide poultry, sheep and goats to the elderly and vulnerable children who are too old or too young to take on farming. These animals can help support children’s education. With our support, the lives of thousands are being transformed.

Gifts in Wills

Although we receive assistance from the British and Irish governments, our projects rely on the support and generosity of the people of Northern Ireland. For instance, our match-funded project with the UK government helped over 2000 people in the Teso region of North-East Uganda, doubling the amount of them who live out of poverty. We cannot rely on government funding alone and need to raise over £200 000 every year to continue our projects and begin new ones.

Any gift left in your will would help change the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the world. We and the people we support would be so grateful and you can be confident that your legacy will help raise whole communities out of poverty.

Tearfund

What we do

Tearfund is a Christian international aid and development agency. We go where the need is greatest, working through local churches to unlock people’s potential and helping them to discover that the answer to poverty is within themselves.

Tearfund works in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. Our work focuses on some of the most challenging issues that face the world today, including disasters, environment and climate change, gender, health care, governance and corruption, water and sanitation, livelihoods and food security, among others.

We work by mobilising the church and providing them with training that equips poor communities to identify and use the strengths they already have to lift themselves out of poverty. We believe it’s very important to work with locally-based partners. They hold valuable local knowledge and are aware of who are the most in need within their community, thus ensuring that aid reaches those who need it most.

Gifts in Wills

Over the years, thanks to the prayer and generosity of our faithful supporters, thousands of local churches have been impacted and envisioned, and millions of lives transformed. With 50 years of helping those in need and a history of excellent practice, Tearfund is among the country’s top ten emergency relief agencies.

We are closer than ever to ending extreme poverty and your legacy gift could make all the difference, bringing hope and life for generations to come. We won’t stop until poverty stops.

Whenever legacy gifts are entrusted to Tearfund, they are used around the world wherever the need is greatest – and your gift, no matter how big or small, could be the lifeline that brings help and hope to those who need it most.

The Leprosy Mission Northern Ireland

The Leprosy Mission Northern Ireland

What we do

The Leprosy Mission is an international Christian development organisation, transforming and empowering the lives of people affected by leprosy. Our goal is to eradicate the causes and consequences of this disease. TLM provides a comprehensive range of services to meet the needs of people, families and communities affected by leprosy.

As well as integrating leprosy and general medical services, where there is need, TLM hospitals and health centres continue to provide excellence in all aspects of specialized leprosy care, often being referral centres for complications of leprosy. However, people affected by leprosy need more than medicine.

TLM programmes deliver compassion and action. While we do identify and assist people to a cure and treat physical impairments through reconstructive surgery, we also invest in education, vocational training, counselling  and community based socio-economic rehabilitation activities.

Gifts in Wills

Thanks to so many faithful supporters, legacy gifts are making a life changing difference to thousands of lives today. The Leprosy Mission is doing so much more than curing leprosy. Counsellors are working to challenge stigma and heal communities. Vocational training centres and small business loans are bringing livelihoods to those who are denied employment. Our holistic care is also providing safe housing, clean water and sanitation to families living in poverty. Rehabilitation projects are providing a hope for the future and empowering those affected by leprosy.

Long Business Description:

Trocaire

What we do

Trócaire is the official overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland. We work with some of the world’s poorest people, supporting communities and delivering long-term change to people’s lives. Established in 1973, today Trócaire works in over 20 countries on issues including livelihoods, human rights, gender equality, HIV, climate change and emergency relief.

In Ireland, we raise awareness about the causes of poverty through our outreach programmes in the education sector, through parish networks and through our public campaigns and advocacy work. Trócaire was set up in 1973 by the Bishops of Ireland to express the concern of the Irish Catholic Church for the suffering of the world’s poorest people.

Gifts in Wills

You can be assured that leaving a gift of any value in your will can make a real and lasting difference to the people that Trócaire works with for generations to come.  When making a will it is important to provide for our loved ones – our family, friends and relatives. Yet it is also a unique chance to provide for those causes closest to our heart and leave a lasting contribution.

From the beginning, Trócaire’s aim has not just been to feed the hungry, but to question why people have no food. Trócaire envisages a just and peaceful world where people’s dignity is ensured and rights are respected; where basic needs are met and resources are shared equitably; where people have control over their own lives and those in power act for the common good.
