Care and Relief for the Young (CRY)

CRY aims to rescue and restore children and young people broken by poverty, oppression, exclusion and abuse.

We set up projects that provide for the most basic needs - food, water, shelter, education - in some of the poorest nations in the world.

But we recognise we can't do that on our own. So we train and support local people and churches to run the projects, using their knowledge to make the projects sustainable for the long-term.

Founded 1992
