CAFOD Walk for Water appeal - Please donate to this cause this lent.

We take clean water for granted; it just comes from the taps in our homes. One in three people in the world don’t have access to clean water close to their homes.

The money you give will help people like Abdella and Hagos in Ethiopia who are struggling to cope in an increasingly hotter and drier climate. Abdella walks for 10 hours a day to collect water for his family. Hagos and his family nearly starved due to drought, but thanks to our Church family and support like yours, CAFOD provided him with solar-powered water pumps. Hagos and his neighbours now have flowing water to cultivate their land.

Water is precious and we take it for granted, please help!
