CAFOD Area Coordinator for the Fylde, Hayley Benyon, shares her thoughts on her volunteering journey with CAFOD……
I have always been drawn to CAFOD as a way to put my faith into action. Whilst it can feel overwhelming when thinking about how families are suffering, I take comfort knowing that CAFOD is helping people, and that the aid distributed is targeted for sustainable projects. I enjoy hearing real life stories from CAFOD personnel and their partners. I wish that I was 30 years younger, so that I could apply to be a CAFOD Step into the Gap volunteer.
I have so many good memories from being with CAFOD. Recently we had a powerful CAFOD Refugee Service. Young and old parishioners prayed in solidarity.
I have gained so much from CAFOD’s thought provoking training and it grounds you in what we can do individually and together, to make a difference to the lives of our global brothers and sisters.
