CAFOD’s coronavirus appeal

Last week, CAFOD launched an urgent appeal to respond to the unprecedented global challenge of tackling the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.

We are already working alongside local aid experts who are providing food and improving handwashing and sanitation facilities in communities and households.

And, with churches who are using their networks to share hygiene messages through Catholic radio stations, and producing posters in local dialects on infection prevention.

With the help of generous communities across the UK, we hope to scale up this support. Donate to CAFOD’s coronavirus appeal now

You can also sign our petition asking the government to prioritise the poorest and most vulnerable both internationally, as well as at home. The effects of coronavirus on developing countries are likely to be devastating.

3 – Donate and Fundraise

CAFOD’s Director, Christine Allen, said: “The potential scale of the pandemic across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East – as well as among refugee and displaced populations in places such as Syria, South Sudan and the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh – is truly frightening.

“We have a narrow window of opportunity to reach communities with the basics for life – food and clean water, and the messages they need on how best to keep safe. Donations have never been more urgent, providing steadfast support to those who are in greatest need”.
