CAFOD are responding to multiple emergencies across the world this week.

August 19, 2021

CAFOD is an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales. They reach out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. Through their global Church network, one of the largest in the world, they have the potential to reach everyone. They campaign for global justice, so that every woman, man and child can live a full and dignified life.

CAFOD is responding to significant crises across the world this week. They are working with local Church organisations in Haiti to deliver emergency aid to people affected by the catastrophic earthquake and tropical storm.

In the tragic situation in Afghanistan, they are working to ensure the safety of their local partners and their communities. They are supporting local aid workers to deliver urgent food and water supplies to hundreds of thousands of people facing extreme hunger in Tigray in Ethiopia, South Sudan and north-east Nigeria.

Your compassion, generosity and prayers have helped CAFOD to stand together and enable them to continue to support communities in these difficult times. You can read more about how we can all express solidarity with our sisters and brothers affected by these emergencies on the CAFOD website.
