2.6 billion people in the developing world have gained access to safe drinking water since 1990, but a further estimated 844 million still have no access to clean drinking water and 841 million have to make at least a 30 minute round trip to find safe water.
With this Harvest Fast Day, Cafod will make safe drinking water more available to our brothers and sisters in countries such as Uganda. Cafod asks whether you can eat more simply on 5 October and the money you save could help to mend or install a water point for an entire village: a wonderful way of acting out our faith.
Gift aid envelopes are at the back of the church for those who wish to contribute, along with more information about the work of Cafod. Thank you for your continued help and prayers.
