Did you know… #3

Did you know … that nearly a billion people will go to bed hungry tonight? For the first few years of his life, 9-year-old Gift from Zambia often had nothing to eat but pumpkin leaves, day after day. But then CAFOD gave Gift’s family the tools, seeds and training they needed to set up a vegetable garden – and today they are flourishing!

To help many more families like Gift’s, please give what you can at Fast Day. Envelopes are available in your church from this week, or you can make a donation online. Thank you for your generosity!

For more  information, to see a video about Gift or to make a donation, visit www.cafod.org.uk/fastday

About cafodhallam

CAFOD is an aid and development agency dedicated to improving the lives of the poorest in our world. In the UK we work to educate people about the causes of poverty, inspire them to campaign to address issues of social justice and inequality, and support them in fundraising activities. Overseas we work with local partners in 40 countries in South America, Africa and Asia to deliver long-term development projects and emergency aid. CAFOD's headquarters are in London and CAFOD Hallam is the local office for Sheffield and the surrounding area.
