 CAFOD is combining efforts with the DEC to launch the Afghanistan Crisis Appeal. In Afghanistan, 8 million people are on the brink of famine because of drought, collapsing economy, food shortages, conflict, and COVID. CAFOD is supporting sister Caritas agencies to reach communities most in need with food, clean water, and fuel.

You can donate on the CAFOD website: cafod.org.uk/AfghanistanAppeal  and please pray for the people of Afghanistan.
