Thank you very much to all that have shown their support for people affected by the Earthquake in Nepal by contributing to CAFOD and the DEC’s emergency appeal!
Thanks to your incredible response, the goal for matched funding from The Big Give has already been reached! More than £39,000 was donated by CAFOD supporters, which will be matched pound for pound.
This is fantastic news, but our partners still need your support as they work day and night to deliver aid to people who have fled their homes. Over 6,000 people are now reported to have died as a result of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake which hit Nepal on Saturday 25 April. Thirty of Nepal’s 75 regions have been affected, many of which are in rural, mountainous regions. Our partners are on the ground providing food, shelter, supplies, clean water and sanitation.
Although the matched funding limit has been reached, every penny of your support counts. You can still donate online through the CAFOD website, or call 0500 85 88 85 to make a donation over the phone. And remember, if you are a UK taxpayer you can make your donation go even further at no extra cost to you by using Gift Aid!
Thank you again to everyone that has donated so far. Please keep the people affected by this disaster, and those working to provide help and support, in your thoughts and prayers.
