How do Christians help victims of war?

Many Christian charities work around the world in countries affected by war. CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) is an example of a Christian charity that helps people in countries affected by war and natural disasters.

Some of the things that CAFOD does to help victims of war include:

  • helping to rehabilitate children who have fought as soldiers in war, offering them education, counselling and support
  • attempting to bring together warring groups to find alternative ways of dealing with conflict
  • providing refugees fleeing conflict with emergency aid, such as food, shelter and cooking equipment
