WHY ARE WE WALKING THIS LENT?
Your sponsorship can and will change lives. Every £1 raised through the Big Lent Walk will help fight poverty globally in countries like Afghanistan, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan.
This year these are our focus areas for Lent:
CAFOD's Lent Appeal is helping fishing communities feed their families in Liberia
SCIAF's WEE BOX Appeal is focused on women and girls in Rwanda facing gender-based violence.
Furthermore, CAFOD and SCIAF have a shared project in Ethiopia and we are working together to respond to the devastating food crisis there. Years of drought caused by the climate crisis means families are no longer able to cope, but your support means we are working with people right now, providing them with water, emergency food and healthcare.
With your hard work and sponsorship this Lent, we can change families' lives for good and tell poverty to take a hike.
