Did you know? (44)

Did you know…. for over two decades, CAFOD supporters have been among those urging the UK government to keep its promise to the world’s poorest people? Victory has not come easily, but this week, Lords supported a bill that guarantees the UK’s commitment to overseas aid. This year alone, UK aid helped over 5 million children go to school, provided more than 19.5 million people with clean water and helped turn the tide in the fight against Ebola. It’s a historic week; a sign of unity and solidarity – one we can be proud of.

We provide a weekly ‘CAFOD fact’ as a short ‘Did You Know?’ to parishes across the Lancaster Diocese, which they print in their parish newsletters. If you would be interested in receiving this weekly email, let us know at CAFOD Lancaster and we’ll send it directly to you too – email: lancaster@cafod.org.uk
