CAFOD Birmingham was very pleased to hear about the fundraising efforts of Eugenie Chung from Coventry who has just completed the Coventry 5k Fun Run on Saturday 10 September.
Eugenie raised a sponsorship of £50 for CAFOD. This contribution will enable CAFOD to work with partners across the globe to deliver transformative projects. This year, our Harvest campaign focuses on Bolivian farmers who are struggling to grow food as in climate that experiences extreme weather. CAFOD’s projects are helping people in these communities to build wormeries and greenhouses, as well as install irrigation systems that will help them with sustainable harvests.
Eugenie has recently joined CAFOD as a volunteer: ‘I am a Catholic and having heard about the things CAFOD have been doing in different parts of the world, I signed up to be a volunteer for them earlier this year.’ Eugenie was inspired to act and do her bit to contribute towards our transformative projects, such as those in Bolivia.
Lizzie Wignall, CAFOD Community Participation Co-ordinator in the West Midlands was delighted with Eugenie’s efforts. She said: ‘“Harvest is traditionally a time of abundance, where communities come together and share food. Eugenie’s fundraising will help those who are without food and it is wonderful to see her putting faith into action to help create a fairer world.”
