CAFOD

Catholic Agency for Overseas Development

CAFOD

We are Catholic

We are the official aid agency for the Catholic Church in England and Wales. With your help, we reach out to people living in hard-to-reach places, in war zones and those who are discriminated against.

We believe that if one of us is hurt, hungry or abandoned, we all are hurt, hungry and abandoned. No one should be beyond the love and support they need to live a dignified life.

We have global reach

We are part of one of the largest aid networks in the world. Because of our global reach and local presence, together we have the potential to reach everyone.

Our local experts help some of the most difficult-to-reach people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Whether it’s a single mother living in a remote area, a teenage boy living in a war zone, or a disabled father and daughter who are discriminated against, we help anyone regardless of faith, gender and ethnicity.

Through a local priest, a midwife or a water engineer – our global reach is present in the lived experience of local communities. These skilled women and men understand what people need because they are part of the communities they work in. Their commitment, passion and knowledge reach people other organisations can’t.

We have the potential to reach so many people because we are a member of a global Church network with a presence in 165 countries. The local Church is trusted even in the most dangerous countries, regions and communities regardless of religion. This means that your support will help those who are truly in need.

WOODCHESTER PRIORY CAFOD GROUP

For many years we have had a team of fundraisers in this parish.  We meet several times a year and make plans for cake sales, sponsored walks, Pancake day sales, and many other ways to raise money for CAFOD.  We would like more members and you can contact us for info.
