Coronavirus is a crisis that effects us all.
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.
How is CAFOD responding?
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.
On 30 April 2020 we launched an emergency appeal for funds, and with your incredible support we have already raised over £3 million.
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.
By working together with our local experts, we are reaching some of the most vulnerable and excluded with food and clean water, reducing suffering and saving lives.
How can I help?
In order to continue protecting and improving the lives of those in poor communities, your gifts are needed now more than ever.
Your continued support can:
- Help parents feed their children and make a living.
- Bring life-giving water into homes.
- Give children the chance to go to school and grow up to be doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs and inspirational leaders around the world.
