20 August – CAFOD: Ten years in Syria
CAFOD highlights the scale of the Syrian crisis which began 10 years ago. Of 12 million people who have left their homes, 5.6 million are still refugees, and approximately 13 million are in need of different kinds of help.
‘Our latest projects are supporting children, lonely elderly people, helping women learn to read, and people restart their small businesses. We’ve always planned for the long term, standing alongside people who lost everything. None of this work would have been possible without your support of CAFOD.
2021 – CAFOD
Thanks to your support, CAFOD has been helping communities around the world cope with the Covid pandemic.
Just in Zambia, in the past year, our reports show we’ve been able to
- reach 1,234,200 people with messages on COVID-19,
- provide 13,312 people with access to safe water,
- train 392 frontline health workers from Zambia’s 11 dioceses on how to prepare for and respond to COVID-19 in their local communities and
- donate over 1000 handwashing hygiene stations in communities to support handwashing measures.
Thank you for standing alongside people in Zambia and for supporting people in more than 30 other countries worldwide.
All charities welcome financial help – but they all stress that the support of our Prayers is equally important.
We actively encourage ALL parishioners to remember in their prayers, the charities we have selected. To this end we have created separate pages which show exaples of their needs and of the benefits they have received as a result of the prayers of supporters. They can be found here:-
