Peru

CAFOD works with partners in Peru

At 1pm, Esperanza Huayama, President of the Association of Forcibly Sterilised Women from the Huancabamba region in Peru, will speak on the work for justice and reparation.

Between 1996 and 1998, 200,000 women and 30,000 men were forcibly sterilised, many without consent or understanding of what the procedure meant for their fertility.

Our partner Peru Support Group and the University of Kent are supporting Esperanza raise awareness in the UK about forced sterilisation.

Live Simply with CAFOD in Leeds

Live Simply workshop

As Christians, living the 21st century,

  • how do we care for the earth?

  • How do we live more simply so that others may simply live?

  • How do we show our solidarity with poor people both at home and across the world?

Many of us are not sure where to start – the questions just seem too difficult for an individual or family to take on.

To find out more about what you can do personally and as part of a parish or church community then come along to our family-oriented, interactive workshop on Saturday 24th June, 10.15 a.m. to 2 p.m. at St.Bendict’s parish centre, St.Benedict’s, Aberford Road, Garforth, LS25 1PX.

The Live Simply Award scheme, managed by CAFOD, provides wonderful opportunities for both individuals and parish communities to reflect more deeply about their faith, and particularly how they care for the earth and care for the poor. It calls people to both personal action and parish action to put their faith into practise.

You don’t have to sign up to the award scheme to come along! – Just come along if you want to find out what you individually and your church or parish community can do to help build a better world where we live more in harmony with our environment and live in solidarity with poor people.
