Walk for CAFOD

This week our children will be taking part in a sponsored walk/run for CAFOD.

By taking part in this event, they will be supporting the Lenten 2022 Appeal ‘Walk Against Hunger’ to raise money for those living in poverty. Around the world, 200 million children are at risk of malnutrition.

Your donations could help in the following ways:

  • £12 can buy ingredients to make a highly nutritious sesame seed paste so a new mum can help her malnourished child grow big and strong
  • £20 can fund expert nutrition and healthcare classes for new mums and dads in rural communities 
  • £200 can feed ten malnourished children sesame paste for a week, helping them grow big and strong
  • £500 can provide an entire community with pepper seeds for planting season 
  • £600 can help local experts deliver a highly effective door-to-door campaign in rural communities, training people in proper sanitation, hygiene and nutrition 

This could transform the lives of people living overseas in poverty. The link below will give you more information about this appeal:

We have chosen to support CAFOD as a way for our pupils to put their faith into action.

By raising money to tackle hunger, we will be supporting our brothers and sisters around the world and living out our school mission.
