Abdella from Afar in Ethiopia

This Lent we are focussing on water or rather the lack of it! Abdella lives in Afar, Ethiopia, one of the hottest regions on Earth and he spends 10 hours every day collecting water for his family. Can you help us support those like Abdella who don’t have nearby access to safe, clean water? Come and find out how at one of our Lent online briefings.

We have meetings to suit everyone, with different days and times available. Find out how to get involved with CAFOD’s exciting ‘Walk for Water’ fundraising challenge, there are different ways to take part and you can do so in a manner in which you feel most safe. We will also explore the resources for CAFOD’s Lent Appeal and tell you more about Abdella’s story. See below for CAFOD in Salford’s meetings:

Reclaiming Our Common Home

Join CAFOD’s new campaign, “Reclaim Our Common Home”.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 says, “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labour.” Ask yourself this question: ‘if two are better than one, how can we come together to make a positive impact on the world?’

‘Reclaim Our Common Home’ is CAFOD’s new campaign, it is a response to Pope Francis’ call for a new way of thinking about the world, and to take an active part in renewing our troubled societies by embracing the universal values of solidarity and fraternity. Sign our petition to the prime minister

In 2020, we experienced the worst global health crisis in a century. The coronavirus pandemic has devastated lives and shattered families in Britain and across the world, with disastrous consequences for people’s jobs and livelihoods.

The right to clean water

Every human being should have access to clean and safe water, but unfortunately this isn’t reality for many people overseas.

If you’d like to learn how you can make a difference to those who have no access to clean water, then join in on our exclusive conversation with Lucy Jardine, Programme Officer for Peru. Hear about the impact that mining is having on the access to clean water in indigenous communities and how local communities are responding with positive signs of hope to the water crisis.

Join us on Thursday 14 January, 11am-12pm
