Catholic Schools across the Archdiocese Brighten up for Harvest

Pupils at St Joseph’s Cathedral Primary School, Swansea

Over the past few weeks, many schools from across the Archdiocese of Cardiff have been taking part in CAFOD’s Brighten Up for Harvest appeal.

Sadly, due to poverty and injustice, this harvest will not be bright for millions of children and young people around the world who will miss out on food, clean water and even on going to school.

But support from our Catholic schools is helping to change this and help to make the world a brighter place for communities living in extreme poverty as they find ways to overcome their many challenges.

The good news is that the number of hungry people in our world is falling.

But, with 793 million of our sisters and brothers still undernourished, we cannot give up.*

We can all be part of helping to eradicate global poverty and building a brighter world

Every little helps when it comes to fundraising and we are grateful for you support and prayers.

To give you some idea about how your fundraising efforts can help:


  • £1 buys seeds for a family to grow beans
  • £7 buys a treated mosquito net that keeps children safe from malaria
  • £33 supplies one family with safe, clean water in their home
  • £300 buys a mobile health team for remote communities that don’t have hospitals
