report Christian Aid

Charity won’t stop the injustices that mean women do two-thirds of the world’s work, but earn just one-tenth of the world income.

It won’t stop multinational companies dodging millions in tax, depriving poor countries of the money they need to pay for healthcare and education.

It won’t protect the world’s poorest communities who did least to cause climate change from taking the brunt of its effects.

To end poverty we must end injustice.
