Many thanAngela howardks to our CAFOD parish volunteer Angela Howard from St Pancras Parish Lewes and her friend Rosa Zammit who organised a sponsored walk on Sunday 10th July to raise money for the Ethiopia Food Crisis Appeal.

Angela said,

“We decided to donate the proceeds to CAFOD’s Ethiopia Food Crisis Appeal.

“The walk was to represent the typical distance, walked by girls and women  developing countries.

“Around ten people joined us on the walk including a couple of the nuns here in the parish which was lovely.

Thanks  so much to all those who joined the walk, sponsored Angela and Rosa and also to those who supported the plant sale.

Ethiopia Food Crisis – fundraiser’s stories

Severe and extreme weather shifts, part of the El Niño effect, mean that the rains in Ethiopia have failed twice. Farmers are losing their crops, water sources are drying up, and families are struggling to keep themselves and their animals alive. As a result, an estimated 400,000 children are suffering from malnutrition and millions are in need of emergency food and clean water.

We urgently need your support to scale up our work and reach more vulnerable women, men, and children with life-saving aid.
