Did you know? (28)

Did you know… estimates suggest that without rapid action, 1.4 million people could be infected with Ebola by Christmas? CAFOD has released £200,000 to our partners in Sierra Leone and Liberia, but we need to raise more money to scale up supplies of hygiene materials and protective equipment, to support safe burial practice. With much fear and denial on the ground, raising public awareness is a good line of defence. Robust action now means that we can save lives. With CAFOD, the Church is on the front line of efforts to halt the spread of the virus.

 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
