Gifts in wills - seeds that will grow

The challenge of global poverty and injustice can feel overwhelming. There aren’t any quick fixes and it’s tempting to ask: “What can I do? What difference can I make?”

Watch our reflection of the popular Oscar Romero prayer to see how together, step by step, we can and do make a difference. 

If we have the courage to begin the journey, to plant the seeds and nurture them, our efforts can grow into something far beyond what we ever imagined. They will be our lasting legacy for future generations.

Legacy: a little word that makes a big difference.

Gifts in wills help us to respond quickly when emergencies strike and to make long-term commitments to communities in need. Without them, one in three of our development projects simply wouldn't be possible.
