Happy 70th Birthday to our NHS

How many of us see ourselves as babies or children of the NHS? The vast majority of us will at some time or another have received fantastic care from the staff and doctors in our NHS. There are still others around who may remember what life was like before the NHS.  Our National Health Service is a great resource for us particularly when our needs are the greatest when a relative or ourself is sick. Here at CAFOD we want to see everyone, irrespective of where they live or how well off they are, receive the best possible care.

Thanks to the help and support of the people of our Catholic Community in England and Wales CAFOD over the last 50 years has been able to bring health care to thousands of people who would otherwise be unable to access health care. Thank you for your support and your prayers. they really does make a difference.
