Sia, a brave mother of six, recalls having nothing in the cupboard before calling CAP.

"I would go looking for coins between chairs, just so we could get some bread... I would tackle a bill and another would pop up. I didn't know how to get out of it... I wondered is this it? Is this life?"

One day, Sia read an article in her local newspaper about a family - just like her - who'd received free help from Christians Against Poverty. Sia decided she wanted the same help, and courageously picked up the phone to call CAP for the very first time.

"I started feeling happier, like I was full. When I was with CAP, I had people that had my back, who believed in me." 

You can help another family like Sia's by giving a one-off , starting a regular gift to CAP or increasing your regular Life Changer gift.
