DEC Syrian Crisis Appeal from CAFOD
In this Holy Week we see Christ crucified again in the lives of the poor and refugees of the world and especially in Syria. CAFOD is asking us to respond to that crisis with our financial and spiritual support:
What has happened?
Fighting in Syria has caused a humanitarian crisis on a staggering scale, and it’s getting worse every day. Over 70,000 people have been killed and more than three million children, women and men driven from their homes.
What are the needs?
2.5 million people desperately need food aid right now. We also need to provide shelter and safety for people driven from their homes, as well as blankets, clothes and other essentials. Please give today to help us reach the most vulnerable people.
What is CAFOD doing?
We’re working through trusted church partners in Syria to get vital aid and supplies to vulnerable people. We’re also working in Lebanon and Turkey, to help refugees who have crossed the border.
