To many, the New Year is a wonderful time of hope and possibility. Despite continuing challenges in the world, in 2016 the compassion and generosity of the Catholic community has helped improve the lives of many men, women and children, through the work of CAFOD, and will continue to do so in 2017. In this spirit of hope, we often make resolutions in the New Year to improve our lives and the lives of others.

Here are our top ten ways to support CAFOD and change the world in 2017:


  1. Pray for the work of CAFOD and the world’s poorest communities

    In 2017 why not make time to pray for our brothers and sisters around the world?

  2. Inspire children and young people: Become an education volunteer for CAFOD

  4. Reach out: Say hello to someone new in your parish or community and write a Message of Hope to refugees
