In our Every Second Counts Report we share examples of the work achieved through your donations over the last year.

Since writing this report we saw the devastating news of the conflict in Sudan and the continued escalation of the war in Ukraine through the attack on the Kakhovka Dam. We ask that you keep all those caught up in emergencies in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for making Every Second Count

Thank you for reaching out to communities in crisis through Every Second Counts. You truly are offering a lifeline to families in the greatest need.

This year we have supported communities in Pakistan recover from devastating floods, families in East Africa in light of the ongoing food crisis, those reeling from the earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria and affected by the conflict in Ukraine, as well as countless silent emergencies that didn’t reach the news.

Update on Pakistan Floods

We're proud that a CAFOD-funded mobile health unit has been transformed to tell stories of some of the survivors of the floods and highlighted by the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). Inspired by meeting families whose lives were devastated by the floods, artist Ali Salman Anchan painted one of the mobile health units funded by CAFOD and deployed by our partner CWSA, using local truck art style to tell stories of hope and resilience.

Now the truck not only provides aid to flood-affected communities as they recover and rebuild their lives, but also celebrates the survivors and brings the work of the health specialists closer to the hearts of communities. Watch the inspirational video below.

Your support is helping

1 in 23 people around the world will need emergency assistance to survive in 2023. Your support will help us meet those needs.

Thanks to you, communities have been given the tools they need survive, to build back stronger and be prepared for future crises. 

We cannot thank you enough for your kindness. However we still need your help. Today we are faced with the ongoing effects of climate change alongside conflict and natural disaster. These multi-layered crises are complex and need your support now to help save lives.
