CAFOD is asking Catholics to sign a petition asking Prime Minister Boris Johnson to ensure that the most vulnerable people are the priority in the UK’s international efforts as well as at home.
The charity says: “We are living through the biggest public health crisis in a century.
“Right across the UK, coronavirus is having a devastating impact on all of our daily lives, and many people have lost precious loved ones. But in many developing countries where poverty is widespread and healthcare systems are much more fragile, the effects are likely to be disastrous.
“We must never forget that we are one global family, united in this struggle. Now is not the time to build barriers, but for the world to unite in love and compassion.
“Out of love for our sisters and brothers overseas, sign our petition asking the Prime Minister to ensure that the most vulnerable people are the priority in the UK’s international efforts as well as at home.”
