You will no doubt be following the continuing crisis and humanitarian situation in Ukraine and the surrounding countries receiving refugees.  You will also have seen Bishop Mark’s message about the importance of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Caritas Plymouth has been asked for advice from parishes  in our own diocese about how we can donate to support those in crisis.

As part of the global Caritas family, we receive regular updates via Caritas Internationalis. Caritas Ukraine has requested that Caritas Internationalis hold income for the Emergency Appeal for onward transfer at its request. We would encourage anyone wishing to donate to give online to  CAFOD  or to Caritas Internationalis, to ensure funds are being given to legitimate organisations through the Caritas federation.

To make a donation to CAFOD please visit : CAFOD
