    No one beyond reach
    CAFOD’s renewed commitment to the world’s poorest people.


    Isacko Jirma is one of our local experts from the Church who is supporting the hardest-to-reach and most marginalised communities, thanks to donations from people like you. Kushi has struggled since losing all her animals in a devastating drought. She is just one of the people in a remote part of Kenya who Isacko and his team have come out to help.

    At the beginning of 2019, we are renewing our commitment to the poorest people in our human family around the world. We believe that no one should be beyond the reach of the love and support they need to thrive. Through our global Church family, we have the ability to reach so many more of those who need our help.

    Watch our film to find out more.

    As Catholics, we are driven by the belief that if one of us is hurt, hungry or abandoned, we all are hurt, hungry and abandoned. No one is outside God’s love. But at CAFOD we are forced to turn away one in three requests for help because we don’t have enough money to go around.


    CAFOD stands for the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development. We are an international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

    We stand beside people living in poverty – whatever their religion or culture. Through local Church partners, we help people directly in their own communities, and campaign for global justice, so that everyone can reach their full potential.

    CAFOD works in communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America.

  • Our Campaigns | CAFOD Play all

    CAFOD’s campaigning tackles the causes of poverty and hunger, not just the symptoms. Speaking out for justice goes hand in hand with our work overseas to help vulnerable families and communities to flourish.

    It enables us to help thousands more communities than we could through fundraising alone, by advocating for changes in policy and practice to reduce poverty overseas. It includes political campaigning, but it is not party political.

  • Top tips for Speaking at Mass for CAFOD Play all

    Speaking at mass for Harvest or Lent? Here's some great tips from people who have tried. Ask someone in the parish to read out the short talk at Mass. If you would like someone to speak at Mass, please contact your local CAFOD volunteer centre.

    Nicanora is 32 years old and lives with her husband and her four children in the Bolivian Altiplano. Despite working long days, they often go hungry. Nicanora explains: “On a normal day we don’t have much food, we eat barley soup. We grind the barley and mix it with water. When we eat just this soup all day, we get tired very quickly. Sometimes I buy some vegetables and make them last as long as I can. But, if there’s no money, and I can’t buy vegetables, we’ll just go without”. But, Nicanora and her community want to change this. With your support, they will work with our partner, CIPCA,to learn new skills, which will enable them to grow crops, despite the harsh climate on the Altiplano.
    Get ready for Harvest Fast Day on Friday 7 October

    This Harvest your parish are invited to join Nicanora on her journey. Please use the resources and share Nicanora’s story with your parish:
