CAFOD Coronavirus Appeal

Many of us here in the UK have suffered terribly because of coronavirus, coping with grief, anxiety and hardship. In the world's poorest countries, health care systems are not coping, and families are going hungry because people cannot go out to earn money. CAFOD is helping to protect and improve the lives of our sisters and brothers during this global emergency. If you can support our Coronavirus Appeal, please donate at, where you will find also more information about how CAFOD is responding. Thank you.
