Come show your support for CAFOD at our exclusive “Habari Uganda” event this Wednesday the 20th January 2016 at St. Patrick’s Church Hall, Thornaby TS17 6NW. Gender specialist Tanja Haque will discuss gender issues, the lack of water in Uganda and the importance of donating to CAFOD’s Lenten Appeal. The event will run from 7:00-8:30 pm and is free for all to attend.

One in four people in Uganda don’t have access to safe water and the burden of collecting it often falls on girls who often have to drop out of school. Donations from CAFOD’s Lenten Appeal will fund education in sanitation and the building of latrines, changing many lives like Proscovia’s.

For more information about the event please telephone 0191 384 4847.
