CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development)

CAFOD are the official aid agency for the Catholic Church in England and Wales. As part of one of the world’s largest aid networks, we help people living in hard-to-reach places, war zones and those who face injustice and discrimination.

In times of crisis, we support teams of local experts who can act fast, providing food, water and shelter for people who have lost everything. And we’re there in the months and years that follow too. No one wants to live on handouts: our ongoing support helps people rebuild their lives and equips them with the skills, tools and opportunities to live with dignity, provide for their families and give back to their communities.

We believe no one should be beyond the reach of the love and support they need to live safe, dignified lives. Please remember CAFOD in your will and help create a better, fairer world.
