CAFOD’s Harvest Fast Day
October 7, 2022
In the Horn of Africa, CAFOD is supporting people facing severe droughts as a result of the failure of the last four rains.
After many years of drought, a large-scale famine is looking likely. Hunger is rife across Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia, reaching as far as South Sudan.
These countries are the homelands of many of our own parishioners across the Diocese of Leeds – including our Eritrean congregation and clergy, one of whom is our newest priest whose family lives in South Sudan.
Local CAFOD partners are providing much needed emergency assistance through the World Food Crisis Appeal | CAFOD and this will be the focus of the forthcoming Harvest Fast Day on Friday 7 October 2022.
Please pray for all those in our diocese worrying about how their families and friends may be affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa – and please help CAFOD’s on-going work supporting people and communities around the world to live with dignity!
