What does CAFOD do?

CAFOD stands for the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development. We are an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

We stand beside people living in poverty – whatever their religion or culture. Through local Church partners, we help people directly in their own communities, and campaign for global justice, so that everyone can reach their full potential.

How to get involved with CAFOD

None of our work is possible without you. Whether you donate, campaign, download prayers or volunteer we are grateful for your support.
