Harvest Fast Day

Last CAFOD Supporters raised 450,000 for Harvets Fast Day, which focussed on the suffering in Sudan.

Stop Child Sexploitation

The first World Congress against the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children took place in Stockholm last August. 1,341 people from 132 countries attended this unique event, including representatives of 119 governments.
A Declaration and Agenda for action was unanimously adopted, committing each country to introduce measures to help end the sexual exploitation of children, a highly organised and rapidly growing industry.
The congress followed a major victory for CAFOD and other agencies who successfully lobbied for the introduction of laws to prosecute British Citizens who abuse children overseas.
CAFOD's Monica Dolan, who attended the Congress said "Britain's signing up to the Agenda for Action puts this country firmly on the side of the world-wide efforts to protect children"

Shoe Mountain

A 1.5 ton mountain of shoes appeared on the steps of St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square in October, at a vigil for the 26,000 annnual victims of landmines.
In a continuing campaign to ban landmines worldwide, organisers including CAFOD built the shoe mountain tp represent the massive loss of lives and limbs to these terrible weapons
