Fifty years ago CAFOD was formally established by the Bishops of England and Wales to help eliminate poverty and injustice overseas. Over the years we have witnessed some remarkable achievements. And so, in this special year, we wish to give thanks to you, our committed supporters; to the Conference of Bishops for establishing CAFOD and for its ongoing support; to our partners overseas, and to all those who enable our vital work to happen.
Looking forward in hope
It is right to look back and consider the change that together we have made possible. But we also wish to reflect on the world that confronts us today. How can we renew and strengthen our response to the poverty and inequality which continues to blight our world?
Your hope, compassion and solidarity are more vital than ever for the years ahead.
