Charity gifts for teachers

For most people, the school term has been a bit of an abstract concept considering how many kids haven't been able to go to school. We know that schools have adapted in different ways, but for many teachers, a closed school has meant even more work than normal! Whether you get to see your teacher in person to say thank you for all their work over the last few months, or if you just want to send a quick e-card to show you know how hard they've worked despite not being able to see them - World Gifts has some great options.

How the Health clinic helps mothers

The Guarjila health clinic has been providing essential healthcare to the remote community for years. CAFOD funding helps it to retain specialist services such as gynaecology, prenatal and paediatric care, nutrition and counselling.   We wanted to share some of the details with you, to show just what your World Gifts purchases can help fund! We were lucky enough to have access to interviews with some mothers who had visited the clinic during their pregnancy and for post-natal healthcare.   Lurvin is 30 years old and lives with her husband and two children.

The Health Clinic and Coronavirus

The Health clinic is one of our most popular gifts from the higher price-range. With schools, parishes and individuals raising money to fund the running costs of a health clinic. The real-life example we give you is of the Guarjila clinic in rural El Salvador. During the civil war, the community of Guarjila was cut off from the rest of the country. To receive essential healthcare, the villagers decided to set up their own clinic themselves. Over the years, CAFOD has been funding them to be able to provide specialist healthcare, including gynaecology, prenatal and paediatric care, nutrition advice and counselling.  The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the stark inequality that people living in poverty face. Those without access to clean, safe...
