Paul lost his job six months ago due to Covid, just as his partner was about to have their baby. They are on Universal Credit and their fridge freezer has stopped working so they need a replacement. All their available funds are taken up with providing food, heating and clothes, which does not leave anything for emergencies like this.
F cares for her husband who lives with epilepsy. She loves to cook but is doing so on only one gas ring as her cooker is hardly working and unsafe. Christians Against Poverty have started helping with their debt and have recommended a referral to Acts 435. F couldn't believe people might be prepared to help someone they didn't know!
This couple are asylum seekers are living on extremely low income as they are a married couple but cannot claim together. They have been through a terrible situation that is very confidential.

M lives with his partner and ten year old son. He has a number of health issues which mean that he is unable to work. They were homeless and living in a hostel, but have recently moved into an unfurnished property. It is a great relief for them to have a proper roof over their heads, and a chance for a fresh start. They have a bed for their son but nothing else. Help with their weekly shopping bill will mean that they can put money aside to get what they need to fit out their new home.
