Tearfund celebrated its 50th anniversary at the House of Commons last month, where MPs and supporters had the opportunity to view a photo gallery that recorded landmark moments. Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham and a Tearfund ambassador, praised the charity’s “vital role” in establishing Jubilee 2000 and mobilising churches to support Make Poverty History.
