Next week, 14th to 20th May will be the diamond anniversary of Christian Aid Week. British churches founded Christian Aid in 1945 to support refugees who had lost their homes and possessions in the Second World War. Twelve years later, they launched Christian Aid Week to help fund this ongoing work. With all the current challenges in the world, they vow that they won't turn their backs now.
Theodor was one of the many refugees who fled his country in search of safety. Hear his incredible story and why he has been a Christian Aid Week collector ever since by clicking here.
