CAFOD Fast Day 2019
This year’s Harvest Fast Day takes place on Friday 4th October. This Harvest we hear from 14-year-old Fabiano about the danger he faced on the long walk to collect water in the dark. Now that a solar powered pump has been installed in his village, Fabiano can get water safely, easily and have time and energy for school. Read more on Fabiano’s story online at cafod.org.uk/harvest.
There are many more children who still need our help and who are risking their safety and missing school to get water. Help to reach more children and communities this Harvest by donating using one of the envelopes provided.
