What Is The Status Of Tearfund
They are a Christian organisation that is based in the UK. They are committed to ending global poverty. Sadly charity given to developing countries rarely goes to the people, it stays within governments, goes towards weapons and armies. Many people in developing countries want to be able to help themselves, work their own land and look after their families from their own efforts. The charity recognises this and seeks to do just this, by working alongside the local Churches.
Like many Christian charities, Tearfund is supported mainly by volunteers and spends very little on marketing and advertising (which a lot of money is spend on by secular charities). As such most of the financial donations goes to the cause. Marketing Quotes
feels that Tearfund is a fantastic charitable cause to support.
