In response to the current crisis taking place in Afghanistan, the Diocese of Westminster aims to provide immediate and longer-term support for Afghan refugees as they settle into their new lives in the UK.
With your support, we will be able to assist in the coordination and promotion of the refugees’ resettlement and integration in parishes across the Diocese of Westminster, as well as to help parishes, schools and social action projects in their work supporting refugees in their local communities.
Since last year's Cardinal’s Appeal, many people’s lives have undergone a dramatic change. Some families were already struggling and, as a result of the pandemic, they can no longer meet essential costs such as rent, utilities and food. Others are facing poverty for the first time. As we emerge from the pandemic, we have had to find new ways to offer fast, effective support to people who are at crisis point.
