More than half a million people in Europe are taking action, donating money and sponsoring children to support ActionAid’s work around the world.
Most of the money we use to help people in poor countries is donated by our supporters in Europe. Supporters in Italy, Greece, Sweden, Denmark, France, The Netherlands, Ireland and Spain enable us to work with communities across the world.
With our supporters’ help we are able to run campaigns, make ourselves heard in the media and demand that the EU and national governments take action to end poverty.
ActionAid’s European Union office is in Brussels, where we can take the fight against poverty and injustice to the heart of the EU's policies on people's right to food, women’s rights and development finance.
