Maria Gonzales CAFOD’s Head of International Development
Join us online to hear our panel of experts: Maria Gonzales Head of International Development, Matthew Carter Head of Emergency Response, Neil Thorns Head of Advocacy and Jenny Hayward-Jones Volunteer Coordinator about how the coronavirus has affected the global south a year on, and the hope that has come from the vaccination programme.
Our next national assembly “Eyes of the World” will take place on Thursday 22 April.
What is the assembly about?
The climate is in crisis and it affects us all. But it is the poorest communities who are suffering the most. The eyes of the world are on us this year as Britain hosts world leaders for the United Nation’s climate change talks – COP26. Over the past year we have seen how important it is to look after one another. Join our assembly and find out how we can come together to look after and care for the world which is crying out for our help, and tackle the climate crisis.
Reena Pena, a parish volunteer at St Martin de Porres in Luton ,thought hard about taking up this challenge as she works shifts as a nurse in the hospital. However, she did decided to do it. She not only raised over £660 (well above her £200 target) to help those who haven’t got access to clean water but she was transformed in the process.
