CAFOD Family Fast Day Friday 1st October 2021
By donating to CAFOD this Family Fast Day, you can help communities affected by the worst impacts of the climate crisis. CAFOD works with local experts to help people around the world to adapt to the changing climate and protect our common home. You can donate by text (please ask for details), on the CAFOD website or by using a CAFOD envelope.
Due to the severity of the climate crisis and the impact it is having on the communities CAFOD supports, this Harvest’s Fast Day appeal is being merged with the Climate Crisis Appeal. Sadly, the climate crisis is increasing the frequency and severity of all natural disasters – typhoons, cyclones, hurricanes, droughts, floods and forest fires. Even when families survive these deadly disasters, they often have very little to return to: homes are destroyed, possessions are lost, and once-fertile land is left desolate.
As Catholics, we believe God’s creation is a gift to be treasured. Instead, our seas are being filled with plastic, our rainforests burned and our wildlife threatened. But we must never lose hope. All around the world, ordinary people are giving their all to protect our planet and each other. In our Fast Day appeal, we hear about one of these, Ivanilde, working to protect her land in the Amazon. This is an example of the work our donations go to support, along with many others. Thank you for your continued generosity. To ensure that everyone can flourish, we need to stop the climate crisis and restore our common home – together.
