CAFOD Harvest Fast Day Collection: Very many thanks to you all for your contributions to the CAFOD Harvest Fast Day Collection this year. We do not yet know the total yet, although the fundraising page reached £507.25 (£622.81 with gift aid added). (The total this year will not of course include TEXT and direct donations on the CAFOD website). The money is dedicated to deal with the Covid crisis in the countries in which they are working, to survive, rebuild and heal.
CAFOD has ambitious plans to save lives, help people recover and build a more just world in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
CAFOD is part of one of the largest aid networks in the world with substantial knowledge and expertise in WASH - water, sanitation, hygiene; and disease control.
Coronavirus has affected every country that CAFOD works in. In countries like Brazil where the disease spread rapidly, many have died of the virus. In other places lockdown measures have made it impossible for people to work and left many facing hunger. This crisis has had an impact on everyone and everything we've worked together to help. But CAFOD has faced crises before, and, together, we've beaten them. With skills honed on the frontlines of life-saving work, CAFOD's network of local experts are ready to put a three-part plan into action -
SURVIVE - REBUILD - HEAL
- to save lives and protect the progress that has been made towards a fairer, greener world
- for everyone.
DonatE to the Rebuild Lives Coronavirus Appeal
The spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) to countries with poor health systems and limited access to clean water will be devastating.
Families who already struggle to get enough food to eat and those living in refugee camps are particularly vulneerable to coronavirus.
In order to continue protecting and improving the lives of those in poor communities, your prayers and gifts are needed now more than ever.
Our local experts are in their communities now delivering vital hygiene training, food parcels and raising awareness of this disease. Find out more about help for the most vulnerable people at: cafod.org.uk/coronaviruscampaign
