All Over the World the Spirit is Moving

CAFOD reports some good news for Pentecost: In St Luke’s Gospel Jesus reads that the Spirit of the Lord is upon him because he has anointed him to bring good news to the poor. We share in that Spirit, let us also share in some good news for the poor.

When CAFOD started 50 years ago, 6 out of 10 people had no access to clean water. Now it’s less than 2 out of 10. That’s a difference you’ve helped achieve. Thank you.

By 2005, 41 million more children received primary education than they did in 1999; and the average chance of a child surviving to the age of five had doubled. That’s a difference you’ve helped achieve. Thank you.

In 2010 hundreds of thousands of families lost their homes in the Haiti Earthquake. Thanks to you, CAFOD is helping over 150 families move into a new home every single day - we could not have achieved this without you.

These are just a few examples of what you have made possible. However you support CAFOD - whether you make a regular gift or support us at Fast Day, whether you write to your MP, remember us in your will or in your prayers: you are making a real and lasting difference. Thank you.
