With mounting debt and uncontrollable anger, Lesley struggled to keep her marriage together. Then she found CAP.

Lesley started attending her local CAP Release Group, along with her husband Bruce, with the goal of giving up 60 cigarettes a week. But early on, it was the group of people who cared about her, and the discovery of the power of forgiveness, that really began to change her life.

In addition to joining a Release Group, Lesley and Bruce also started CAP Debt Help, and began their journey out of unmanageable debt.

Today, with the help she received through CAP and the local church – made possible by people like you – Lesley’s now free from her uncontrollable anger, cigarette addiction…and debt!

Every day, people like Lesley reach out to CAP - and you can help them!

By giving to CAP, you’ll be lifting people out of debt, poverty and its causes and giving them new hope and a community of people who care. Your giving means that more people will have access to CAP’s free services, wherever they live in New Zealand, and the opportunity to encounter the life-saving help and the love of God.

Everything changed for Lesley because someone said: “Yes – I want to help!”

Today, will you help change someone’s life by giving?
