This Lent we are focussing on water or rather the lack of it! Abdella lives in Afar one of the hottest regions in Ethiopia and he spends 10 hours every day collecting water for his family.
Can you help us support those like Abdella who don’t have a nearby access to safe, clean water?
Come and find out how at one of our Lent supporter meetings.
Our meeting on Saturday 30 January will have a guest speaker from CAFOD’s International Programme in Ethiopia. We will also explore the resources for the Lent Appeal and tell you more about Abdella’s story.
All meetings will take place on zoom.
Saturday 30 January 10.30am – 12.30pm South East Region Meeting with guest speaker Connor Molloy, Country Director for Ethiopia will be speaking about CAFOD’s projects in Ethiopia. Please register to attend by Eventbrite!

2020 has shown us how much we value and need each-other. Your support during the year has been hugely appreciated. Many of you have joined one of our campaigns with us or helped us with a much-needed donation, or perhaps you have held us and those in poverty in your prayers. Whichever way you chose to support us, thank you. 2020 was a better year for many because of your support.
Did you know that we have a team of volunteers throughout England and Wales who are vital to our work? They’re a huge team of people who raise awareness of our work in parishes, schools and on social media.
Many help us support other volunteers, or with office and communications work Some help spread the word wider by working with media outlets. Many have specific skills they bring to our mission while others have skills they want to learn and hone to as they develop their own potential. We provide support and training for any role you take on.
Would you be willing to join our team of volunteers and make the world a better place in 2021? Could you volunteer with CAFOD? Not only will you gain new friends and skills, but you’ll be a part of our life-saving work.
Can you help us reach more people who are struggling with poverty?
