Did you know…Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Nick Hurd has given the thumbs-up for your incredible support at Lent? He says “It’s fantastic that people across England and Wales will be ‘making a splash’….for CAFOD’s Lent Appeal, supporting thousands of people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zimbabwe, and Uganda. By doubling every pound raised, together we can ensure that 300,000 people, especially young girls, can go to school rather than walking miles to collect water, can be protected from disease, and live healthy, productive lives.” Your support is transforming lives. Thank you!
Your donations doubled
And, as the minister points out: each £1 you donate during Lent will be doubled by the UK government at no extra cost to you.
The UK government has promised up to £3.5 million for you to untap this Lent.
