LFD16 Parish Prayer card-1CAFOD Lent Appeal 2016

For Proscovia, water meant an education, and a chance to follow her dreams.

This Lent Fast Day, donate to CAFOD’s Lent Appeal and the UK government will match what you give, £1 for £1, at no extra cost to you. Please give today and double the impact of your donation.

Donate now or via the retiring collection at Mass this coming weekend, or by placing a special donation envelop in the regular collection next Sunday.

Almost one in four people in Uganda don’t have access to safe water. For 14-year-old Proscovia, this meant that she had to collect water for her family, missing hours of school. She almost had to give up her education entirely.

Watch CAFOD’s Lent Appeal film to meet Proscovia and find out how the money you give this Lent will change lives.

LFD16 Parish Prayer card-2By donating to CAFOD, you are helping provide clean, safe water to people living in poverty. This water means so much: enough to drink; freedom from disease; sanitation and dignity; time saved.

We’ve got more great news. Donate to our Lent appeal today and the UK government will match what you give, £1 for £1. And if you set up a direct debit, your first three months will be matched.

This offer is only valid for donations to the CAFOD Lent Appeal up to a total of £3.5 million, and for donations received between 10 February and 9 May 2016.

Our Lent Appeal film was kindly voiced by our ambassador, ITV Newsreader Julie Etchingham.

Matching your donations with UK aid

Life without water. This Lent, you can help turn on the taps.
