Did you know? (7)

We provide a weekly ‘CAFOD fact’ as a short ‘Did You Know?’ to parishes across the Lancaster Diocese, which they print in their parish newsletters. If you would be interested in receiving this weekly email, let us know at CAFOD Lancaster and we’ll send it directly to you too – email: lancaster@cafod.org.uk

Did you know……CAFOD has joined with Muslim aid agencies to warn that more than half the population of the Central African Republic risk going hungry as a result of instability and violence across the country? CAFOD, Islamic Relief, Muslim Aid and the Muslim Charities Forum have launched a joint mission in the country to help those directly affected by the crisis. By working together as Catholic and Muslim charities, we can be of immediate practical help and also send out a strong message of unity and hope.
