Congratulations are in order for students from St Columba’s College,  St Albans, who successfully raised £569 for CAFOD’s Syria appeal.

St Columba's Syria Fundraising

The first form boys hope their efforts will raise awareness for CAFOD’s work with those affected by the current crisis in Syria, in addition to raising vital funds to help with relief efforts.

The violence in Syria over the past two years has killed thousands and left more than 3 million people in desperate need of food, shelter, clothing and other essentials. CAFOD is working through trusted church partners to get vital aid and supplies to vulnerable people in Syria, as well as helping refugees who have fled accross the border into Lebanon and Turkey.

CAFOD needs your support to continue to help those affected by this crisis. You can donate to CAFOD’s Syria appeal and help to make a difference right now by visiting the campaign webpage here.

Thank you to the boys from St Columba’s for their great work, and to everyone who has so far supported CAFOD’s work in and around Syria. We ask that you continue to keep the people of Syria and its neighbouring countries in your thoughts and prayers.
