For diocesan manager Tony Sheen, visiting CAFOD’s partners in Brazil was a truely inspiring experience. Tony witnessed firsthand how lives are being changed because of CAFOD supporters standing with them in solidarity, and acting to tackle the causes of their poverty. There have been successes, with many in the favela obtaining the right to stay on their land. This is the first step to building more permanent housing and obtaining more reliable sources of clean water and sanitation. But the work is not yet done, and CAFOD and its supporters will continue to stand alongside them in prayer and action as long as is needed.
Why not invite Tony to your parish or school to hear about his journey in Brazil, and CAFOD’s inspiring work tackling poverty? Contact CAFOD Westminster today for more information or to arrange a visit: 0208 449 6970 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
