What others say about our charitable organization

“I’m excited about Tearfund Germany because they don’t just dream about change, they actively support people in need. They do this in a very practical way with many ingenious projects that I can easily participate in. The “boundless love” spurs me on to be part of this change. At the same time, I myself am changed and sensitised to live this change in my everyday life.”

“The things that I take for granted as a basic necessity of life are at most a dream in other places. Tearfund Germany provides sustainable aid in an authentic way in Yemen, Pakistan, Somaliland, and elsewhere. As an ambassador for Tearfund Germany, I call on you to become part of the team: share your money, get informed, enlist a team member to help you, and find out more about the heartbeat of God that the Tearfund team around the world follow and that you can follow, too.”

“The values of prayer, genuine relationships, and living charity are visible both internally and externally at Tearfund Germany. I am touched time and again by the fact that words and deeds match here. I thank Tearfund Germany from the bottom of my heart for the dedicated and professional way it works – especially in regions that otherwise receive little attention and support.”

“Tearfund Germany helps exactly where help is needed most – in the middle of crisis areas and disasters globally. Partnership, sustainability, transparency and respect are central values and lived realities of this Christian aid organization. I am grateful to have been able to know this wonderful work and many of its staff for many years and wish God’s blessing for all missions from the bottom of my heart.”
