Last year CAFOD’s World News Officer, Laura Ouseley, travelled to the village of Idomeni on the border of Greece and Macedonia. She visited the huge makeshift refugee camp to meet the men, women and children who live there, as well as volunteers and CAFOD partners. Laura will be talking about her visit and updating us on the work that CAFOD’s partners are doing in Lebanon, Jordan and Greece. 

‘How can I help refugees?’

Watching the plight of refugees from war-stricken countries, such as Syria, can often leave us feeling helpless and asking ourselves questions such as “How can I help?”, “Could I help welcome and support a refugee family in my community?”. If you are interested in working out answers to these questions, please come along and share your thoughts.

Pope Francis called upon parishes to play their part supporting refugees. This is your opportunity to respond to that call.
