All Welcome To Join Peru Webinar

All are welcome to join a webinar which will discuss forced sterilisation in Peru on Friday June 23. 

Peru

CAFOD works with partners in Peru

At 1pm, Esperanza Huayama, President of the Association of Forcibly Sterilised Women from the Huancabamba region in Peru, will speak on the work for justice and reparation.

Between 1996 and 1998, 200,000 women and 30,000 men were forcibly sterilised, many without consent or understanding of what the procedure meant for their fertility.

Our partner Peru Support Group and the University of Kent are supporting Esperanza raise awareness in the UK about forced sterilisation.

Concert for Connect2

Chelsie Sinton invites you to a concert that could change someone’s life.Connect2 gig photo

Connect2 is our scheme that links parishes in England and Wales to communities overseas. It’s a great way to show solidarity for our sisters and brothers in the south by taking a journey with ordinary people leading extraordinary lives. Through the support of your parish, people’s lives can be transformed.

On Saturday 10th June, we’re organising a concert for our supporters to enjoy a great night out but also as a way of letting people know about the amazing results that Connect2 can achieve. Local band 2econd Wind will be playing a mix of music from the 60s to the 80s so you’re sure to have a good time. There’s a licensed bar and, in true CAFOD spirit, people are being asked to bring food to share. The event is being held at St. Joseph’s parish centre in Birtley from 7 to 11 p.m. If you’d like tickets or for more details, please get in touch at hexhamandnewcastle@cafod.org.uk.
