Amazing response to Nepal Emergency from Cathedral School

IMGP0138

In response to the Nepal Emergency Appeal, pupils from the School Council at Plymouth’s Cathedral School held a cake sale and mufti day, raising the magnificent total of £232.53!

CAFOD and its partners began delivering aid within hours of the first earthquake, and is continuing to work around the clock to provide life-saving aid to homeless and injured families. In coalition with partners in the Caritas network of Catholic aid agencies, food, shelter kits and emergency supplies have been provided to more than 38,000 people so far, and the aim is to reach 175,000 people in the first eight weeks of the response. CAFOD’s specialist team on the ground is providing technical expertise around water, sanitation and hygiene management, as well as in the protection of children and vulnerable adults.

CAFOD’s work is possible thanks to the generosity of Catholics in England and Wales, so congratulations to the Cathedral School pupils for all their hard work and thanks to all who helped and gave!
