Your support has made a genuine difference

A personal thank you from CAFOD's Director

Hello, I’m Christine Allen, CAFOD’s director.

Happy Easter! As we celebrate this joyous season of resurrection and new life, I want to take the opportunity to share a huge and heartfelt thanks with everyone in CAFOD’s fantastic family.

CAFOD truly is a family, one whose sisters and brothers are spread around the world, and one that I’m extremely privileged to be a part of. This Easter, you’ve proven once again that no one is beyond the reach of love.

Thousands of you took on the challenge of our Big Lent Walk, including 650 schools across England and Wales, tackling 200km during Lent to give poverty its marching orders!

Thousands more of you sent messages to the World Bank demanding they help to Fix the Food System.

And so many of you gave a donation to support your global family during Lent. Your gifts are getting to work quickly to help families fleeing conflict and natural disasters, to support parents fighting climate change, and to provide practical help to communities overcoming poverty together.

Thank you so much for all you do.

Happy Easter and may the peace of the Risen Christ be with you.

Happy Easter

Easter is a time for us all to recognise the power of hope. Hope isn’t passive, and throughout Lent, you, our wonderful supporters have continued to act in hope. Your prayers, vital volunteering and campaigning, and generous donations to our Lent Appeal are great examples of hope in action.

Share the joy of Easter

It’s not too late to make a donation to our Lent appeal, if you haven’t already, and to give Dristy and others like her, the tools they have told us they need to fight the climate crisis.

Make a difference today

God bless you,

Christine Allen, CAFOD Director
