CAFOD Emergency Appeal launched on 30th 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.
In these challenging times when we can’t all worship together we have set up a CAFOD JustGiving page for our parishioners from Exeter and Topsham parish churches, Sacred Heart, Blessed Sacrament and Holy Cross, to raise funds for our brothers and sisters in developing countries. For more information please visit our JustGiving page and support by donating and/or taking part in a sponsored activity and/or join us in our virtual pilgrimage to Lourdes.
You can access all events here and there is also a petition to sign here to ask the UK government to ensure that the most vulnerable and marginalised people are the priority in the UK’s international efforts as well as at home.
