At the AGM members are asked to suggest charities that they would like the CATCH the chaplaincies sister charity to specifically support in the coming year. After a brief presentation, a vote is taken and two or three are selected to receive donations collected by CATCH from particular services. Additionally some Chaplaincy members are representatives of charities, details of which are also given below.
These charities are selected at the AGM to receive our support during the year.

An international, independent medical humanitarian organisation We provide medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. Our teams are made up of tens of thousands of health professionals, logistic and administrative staff - most of them hired locally. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality. We work in more than 70 countries, Médecins Sans Frontières provides medical humanitarian assistance to save lives and ease the suffering of people in crisis situations. In late February 2022, attacks by Russian forces on multiple cities in Ukraine have since led over 5 million people to become refugees. As war spreads throughout Ukraine, people are fleeing the country. They are exhausted, scared and many are suffering from hunger, dehydration or hypothermia. Our teams in Ukraine have had to suspend our usual medical activities. We are now scaling up our emergency response in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries. In addition to Ukraine, we have teams responding in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Russia and Belarus.
These charities are championed by people in the Chaplaincy. To access the charity's website, click on visit site.
