As of 2014, Christian Aid helps over 500 ministries in over 100 countries throughout Africa, the Middle East and Gulf countries, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia, Southeast Asia and China. Christian Aid also provides training and support to indigenous missionaries.
The way that Christian Aid helps people depends on the specific location. In some areas, it sets up churches and gives people literature about Christianity. In areas where food is scarce, it feeds people. In areas with tainted water sources, Christian Aid digs wells. Orphans are given shelter and care. Christian Aid helps people who have been victims in natural disasters. It also provides support for Christians who are being persecuted.
