Analysis of CAFOD (A Charity Organization)

The charity I am going to analyse and explain is CAFOD. CAFOD was
formed in 1961when the National Board of Catholic Women decided to
carry out a family fast day, because the people of the Caribbean
Island of Dominica had requested help for a mother and baby health
care programme. A year after the family fast day the Catholic bishops

1985 CAFOD have opened three clinics and 40 health workers (voluntary)
have been selected by the community and trained by CAFOD to give basic
medical care and advice on hygiene, nutrition and child care. In
Brazil around six million homeless children live on the streets. CAFOD
is helping the parish of Piexinhos in Olinda which runs a scheme for
children named “The Community Taking Responsibility for its Children”.
In this scheme they teach children how to earn a living with basic
skills and also give the children literacy classes. In Bangladesh
floods often wipe out entire fields of...
