Christians against Poverty.
“We exist because nobody should be held hostage by debt and poverty.
But the truth is that they are rife in the UK.
In a society where people live behind closed doors, thousands are desperately poor.
Unable to feed their children, incapable of paying to heat their homes in winter, the grip of poverty is relentless. It breaks families apart and drives many to think that suicide is the only solution.
UK poverty is real, with millions locked in its miserable grip. That’s why we’re aiming for 1,000 CAP centres covering the UK, each bringing life changing freedom and good news to people in desperate need. Always through the Church. Always hope.”
Mercy Ships are a faith-based team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donating their time to help on board the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital.
As a floating hospital, they can sail directly to some of the world’s poorest people to deliver life-saving medical care and provide safe, state-of-the-art facilities in which to treat them.
Their supporters are a vital part of the team, paying for essential medical supplies and ship repairs. Together, they have helped transform the lives of more than 2.54 million people in the poorest countries of the world since 1978.
