World gifts are not just for Christmas! Jenny from Porthcawl tells us more…

Parishioners from Our Lady, Star of the Sea in Porthcawl, have been enormously generous in supporting our volunteer Jenny Worthington as she set out to walk the CAMINO Way for CAFOD.

Her mission was to find enough sponsors to reach her goal of funding a CAFOD World Gift – a Health Centre.  This amazing World Gift can pay for the running costs of a life-saving clinic in a remote community.  It keeps the clinic stocked with medicines, medical equipment and even provides petrol for the clinic ambulance, giving vulnerable people vital access to much needed healthcare.
