CAFOD launched its coronavirus emergency appeal on 30 April. The effects of coronavirus on developing countries where CAFOD works are likely to be devastating. Families without enough to eat and without access to clean water and healthcare are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus. The poorest and most marginalised communities will be pushed further into poverty. Your prayers and gifts are needed now more than ever to help protect the lives of those in poor communities. While we are not able to hold physical collections in our church, you can donate as individuals on the CAFOD website: CLICK HERE.
The impact of Covid-19 on our sisters and brothers overseas Just as the impacts of Covid-19 are being felt on unprecedented levels here in the UK, Cafod is extremely concerned about the impact of the virus on vulnerable and marginalised people in developing countries with healthcare systems much more fragile than our own. Please sign the petition to the UK government to ask them to ensure that the most vulnerable and marginalised people are the priority in the UK’s international efforts as well as at home. Please CLICK HERE to add your name to the petition.
How can I help CAFOD?
Through prayer: Join us at a live stream Mass, use our coronavirus prayers or light a virtual candle in prayer and make a special donation to our work protecting lives.
Through campaigning: Sign our new petition to the Prime Minister asking the government to put the needs of the most vulnerable first.
With your family: If you have children in your family, please also make an appointment with us every Sunday for our online Children’s Liturgy Live.
