Why your donation matters
Shouldn’t everyone have a place to call home at Christmas? “I used to think: ‘How long must we bear this? Will we ever return alive?’”
When fighting erupted in their Sri Lankan village, Surenthiran and her family ran in terror. They returned to find their home destroyed. With nowhere else to go, they lived in camps and makeshift shelters, never feeling safe.
Our housing projects provide much more than bricks and mortar – they give the poorest families a chance to start life again. Surenthiran says the security of her new home is the best gift she could imagine.
This Christmas, will you help another family find a place to call home?
Case study: donations in action
After years of living in camps and temporary shelters, Surenthiran has found peace in her new home, provided by CAFOD. “We are happy now,” she says with a smile.
