CAFOD is a member of DEC, Disasters Emergency Committee, and part of one of the largest aid networks in the world – Caritas Internationalis. Because of their global reach and local presence, they are there when an emergency hits. Their Ukrainian and neighbouring Caritas local aid workers and volunteers are part of the communities they work with and so understand people’s immediate needs.
Donations will go to local Caritas aid workers providing humanitarian aid and safe spaces for thousands of Ukrainian civilians caught up in the fighting.
