Children were asked to bring in a coin from and some pupils helped draw fish with scales for the coins to be placed on.

CAFOD’s Lent appeal focused on the story of a Zambian woman called Florence and the theme of ‘turning little fish into big fish’.

In Lent, CAFOD worked with communities in Zambia. It is estimated that over half of Zambians live below the poverty line, meaning many families do not have enough money to meet basic needs such as food, housing and clothing.

CAFOD’s partners in Zambia provide training in fish farming, beekeeping and crop farming as well as helping individuals within communities develop business skills.

Thank you to all schools and parishes who held fundraising events in aid of CAFOD during Lent. Without your generosity, our work wouldn’t be possible.
