Coronavirus is a crisis that affects us all. It will take all of us working together to survive, rebuild and heal.
With you by our side, our local experts and community volunteers can ensure help reaches the most vulnerable communities on earth before the virus does.
How is coronavirus affecting vulnerable communities?
Families without enough to eat and without access to clean water, possibly living with HIV or other underlying health conditions will be particularly vulnerable to coronavirus.
The long-term effects of the virus will be devastating. In many countries, a strict lockdown means that many people will suffer a huge loss in income, pushing people further into poverty and putting millions at risk of hunger and malnutrition.
What is CAFOD doing to help people rebuild their lives?
Our mission has always been to work for a world where every woman, man and child can not only survive, but live independently, with dignity and hope.
In the wake of this unprecedented crisis, we must stand together to not only survive, but to hold on to and rebuild the things we’ve worked so hard for – security, education, hope, and an end to generations of poverty and living hand to mouth.
We are working to help communities to rebuild, and survive the effects of coronavirus in the long-term. We are adapting our long-term development work to ensure that people are able to continue to earn a living, and that children can continue their education in a safe environment.
