At Tearfund we’ve always believed that even a small group of passionate Christians can make a difference in a broken and hurting world.
In story after story, we have seen God’s generous and relentless spirit, restoring and healing the lives of families and communities previously crushed by poverty and systemic injustice.
Today, we work in Africa, Asia, the Pacific and with the First People of Australia, partnering with local Christian groups to show the love of God in some of the world's most difficult places.
For decades, we have championed for more and better aid, calling on our government to act fairly toward our global neighbours.
Together, we’ve driven conversations about faith and consumerism;
We’ve cried out for action on climate change;
We’ve journeyed alongside the local church, praying and seeking God’s Kingdom.
Yet we understand more than ever, that there is a distance still to be travelled.
This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter. TEAR Australia as a name will cease as we again become Tearfund, working together with the worldwide Tearfund family towards greater impact and efficiency.
But our work, focus and passion won’t cease. As we always have been, we remain dedicated to serving the world’s most vulnerable, and to engaging Christians in Australia with the discipleship implications of the good news today.
In fact, as we prepare to celebrate our 50th year in 2021, be assured that we are only just getting started.
