Some of the complaints I have against them go back quite a long time, and perhaps it is time to forgive and forget.
However, I really don't think so. I work on the (quite possibly delusional) assumption that if I am thinking like this, others may be too.
For that reason, and because it seems to me that CAFOD has betrayed the trust of many who gave (and many who still give) to it based on its claim 'CAFOD seeks to exercise a role consistent with its Catholic character,' I think that CAFOD really needs to do three things:
Firstly, admit that they have got some things wrong: specifically and without reservations (none of the 'sorry if we have been misunderstood' type of rubbish);
Secondly, apologise for the errors;
Thirdly, reform, so that they are totally aligned with Catholic social, moral and liturgical teaching and praxis. That may involve changes in personnel, policy and practice.
Until they do that, those of us who mistrust them will find it very hard to be convinced that they are worthy of support, and will continue to examine them with a prejudicial eye...
Prejudicial, in that we have made our judgement (based on evidence) and until we see reason to reverse it, it is likely to stand.
