CAFOD’s Unite against Coronavirus
Unite against Coronavirus
We are living through the biggest public health crisis in a century. Right across the UK, Coronavirus is having a devastating impact on all of our daily lives, and many people have lost precious loved ones. But in many developing countries where poverty is widespread and healthcare systems are much more fragile, the effects are likely to be disastrous. We must never forget that we are one global family, united in this struggle. Now is not the time to build barriers, but for the world to unite in love and compassion.
Out of love for our sisters and brothers overseas, sign our petition to the the Prime Minister asking him to ensure that the most vulnerable people are the priority in the UK’s international efforts as well as at home.

Our sisters and brothers overseas do not have access to healthcare systems as brilliant as the NHS. I urge you to work together with other world leaders to:
Make sure that any vaccine developed with UK public money is made available to everyone regardless of their income or where in the world they live.
Provide urgent financial and technical support to help developing countries cope with this crisis.
Cancel all debt payments by developing countries due in 2020 so that countries can spend money on much needed healthcare rather than debt repayments.
Put plans in place to rebuild a fairer, more just society after the crisis so that the world’s most vulnerable people can live in dignity and to restore our common home for future generations.
The most vulnerable across the world will suffer the most. Help us provide care and sanitation to them. We are expanding and adapting our programme work to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of coronavirus in communities. Every step we take now getting food and safe, clean water to families, will help prevent deaths and reduce suffering.
