Did you know…award-winning actress and CAFOD supporter Jo Joyner is calling for continued support after visiting communities in Nepal who were severely affected by April’s earthquake? Jo travelled to Nepal to see how people are coping three months since the devastating earthquake. As a member of the Caritas network of Catholic aid agencies, CAFOD is working with local partners, cooperatives and volunteers to reach some of Nepal’s worst hit areas. To date, we have reached nearly 300,000 people with humanitarian assistance, including food, emergency shelter materials and hygiene kits.
Jo is now backing our Nepal Earthquake Appeal which has so fair raised £3.3million thanks to generous donations from our supporters across England and Wales.
Jo appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on 21 July talking about her experiences in Nepal. Watch this video clip of Jo in Nepal
