Did you know? (19)

Did you know…..CAFOD’s partners are on the ground in Gaza right now? Islamic Relief, Catholic Relief Services and Caritas Jerusalem are working around the clock, at great personal risk, to provide life-saving aid to families injured and homeless because of the conflict.  Please contact Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond urging him to help halt the violence.  You can do this at www.cafod.org.uk/gaza  CAFOD condemns violence against civilians by all sides. Violence as a response to violence only results in more violence.  We remember all of the dead with sorrow and continue tirelessly to pray for peace.
