Thirst for Change launches at Sheffield Hallam University

All this week CAFOD Hallam can be found at Sheffield Hallam University as part of their Fairtrade Fortnight activities organised by the university’s multi-faith chaplaincy.

As well as promoting an understanding of Fairtrade products, CAFOD is making the link between Fairtrade and our Thirst for Change campaign. The fair wages earned by communities who grow and make fairtrade produce means they are more able to put money into projects like, for example, boreholes and sanitation. However, there are still 884 million people around the world who have no access to clean, safe water and 2.6 billion who have no safe sanitation.

Come and find us on Level 2 of the main SHU building, City Campus, Howard Street, to add your voice to the thousands of others asking David Cameron to put ‘Taps, Toilets and Training’ at the top of the G8 agenda in May.
