Haitian charity worker visits Enfield church
A Christian charity group from Haiti paid a visit to a church to say thank you for its help after the island's 2010 earthquake.
Farther François Kawas, who has been working with The Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD), visited the parish of Our Lady and St George in Enfield.
He visited the church to thank the church and the CAFOD for its help providing emergency relief and support since the disaster, which killed 230,000 people and left more than one million people homeless.
He said: “Thank you for welcoming me with such generosity and openness. I feel I am part of a big and nice family.
"In the name of the Haitian people I say thank you to you for all your support and for your solidarity. Poor people in Haiti are still counting on you to help them to help themselves to build their own future.”
Groups from Enfield churches raised money to provide fresh water, shelter and providing training to prevent the spread of disease.
During his time Fr Kawas visited a number of churches in the capital including students and staff at Finchley Catholic High School in Woodside Lane, Finchley.
