The Cathedral community takes seriously the commandment of Jesus that we should love our neighbour as ourselves. We can do this only because of the generous giving of our members.
During the current crisis, we have reached out by giving vital funds to Gibraltar's Care Agency, and we have donated money to the local branch of St John's Ambulance so that they can safely deliver meals to elderly people cut off from other support.

Across the border in La Linea we have given help to the charity Nuevo Hogar Betania which works with diverse groups of disadvantaged people. Over the last year we have supported the construction of new accommodation for the rehabilitation of the homeless, and during the current crisis we have made donations towards their nutrition programme.
Outside the new block
Looking further afield, we have funded the construction of a new classroom for a school run by the Episcopal Church of Sudan, in the northern city of Omdurman. The government here has ruled that girls and boys should be taught separately, so schools that want to educate both need more classrooms.
In August we were pleased to send financial help to our partner diocese in Peru,to help them through their particular difficulties with covid-10 pandemic. Their cathedral has a website here.

Last year we sent money to a school in South Sudan so that they could drill for water... now we have heard that the project succeeded, and hundreds of people will have easy access to clean water. See photos here.
