How much do you understand CAFOD?

by Annie Powell

On 24th October CAFOD Hallam invited a group of young people, all interested in CAFOD and keen to find out more about CAFOD’s work, to take part in the understanding CAFOD workshop.

The day attracted a variety of people all aged 16+ and was dedicated to increasing their understanding of CAFOD and letting them know of the different ways they could help CAFOD’s work!

We began the day with a joint lunch allowing everyone to introduce themselves and get to know each other. This was followed by activities and talks from current volunteers about campaigns such as the Hungry for Change campaign. One of the activities demonstrated the different ways it is possible to help CAFOD such as through campaigning, fundraising and prayer.

After listening to campaign volunteer Angela Wood talk about people who are poor because crops they grow are bought from them for very little money then sold on for a lot more by much bigger, richer companies, I feel inspired to buy more fair trade products. I will also find out more about the Hungry for Change campaign.
