Help the developing world this Christmas with CAFOD’s World Gifts

As we enter Advent and start to look forward to Christmas, don’t forget about CAFOD’s World Gifts catalogue! It features a range of gifts that can help to make a real difference to the lives of some of the world’s poorest people. One of the many great gifts available is the opportunity to help a family start their own crab farm.

Bibek Mollick, a crab farmer from Bangladesh, who received training and funding from one of CAFOD’s partners, helping him to make a net profit in his first year.

In areas prone to flooding the ground is often left too salty to grow rice or other crops, so crab farming can be ideal as an alternative source of food and income. For £56 you can provide a family with all the training and equipment they need to set up their own crab farm.

You can view the full range of gifts and place an order online by visiting the World Gifts webpage at http://worldgifts.cafod.org.uk/. Catalogues should also be available in your parish. If you’d like to order more, contact CAFOD Westminster by phone on 0208 449 6970 or by email at westminster@cafod.co.uk.
