Gift bundles group some of Present Aid's most popular gifts around a theme such as education, agriculture, healthcare or the environment. The bundles are ideal Mothering Sunday gifts for anyone working in, or with an interest in, these areas, and contributes to Christian Aid's work to transform lives in poor communities around the world.
The training and education bundle (£16) would make a perfect Mothering Sunday gift for a teacher. The gift would also contribute to Christian Aid's education fund, which provides school and healthcare resources for children in poor communities, as well as training for farmers to grow crops more efficiently.
For gardening or farming enthusiasts, the agriculture and livestock bundle (£40) contains Present Aid's best selling goat, and cocoa seedlings, both of which help families establish sustainable sources of income.
Other gift bundles are available at a range of price points:
Mixed gift bundle (£150) contributes to school and healthcare resources for children. It contains jerry cans to store safe water, crops for farmers, and emergency first aid kits.
Water and environment bundle (£345) provides a well to give an entire village access to clean water, plus jerry cans to allow families to store the water safely.
Healthcare bundle (£95) mosquito nets and a pair of crutches can both make a huge difference to the lives of others.
Emergency and disaster bundles (£40) provides food for a month for a family and a first aid kit to save lives during an emergency.
The gift's recipient can be sent a gift card by post (order by 6 March for Mothering Sunday delivery). A variety of card designs are available and the gift card will feature details of the chosen gift along with a personalised message. As an alternative for last minute gifts, the recipient can be sent an e-card or print-at-home card.

We provide urgent, practical and effective assistance in tackling the root causes of poverty as well as its effects.
3. Christian Aid has a vision, an end to global poverty, and we believe that vision can become a reality. We believe that the underlying causes of poverty were made by, and can be ended by, human action. Our strategy for building the power of us all to end poverty is embodied in a new report ‘Partnership for Change’: http://www.christianaid.org.uk/Images/2012_strategy.pdf
