On Saturday 17 June, Birmingham East CAFOD supporters gathered at Mother of God and Guardian Angels parish, Shard End to hear about CAFOD’s work in Cambodia.
Step into the Gap Volunteer, Charlotte Bray, shared moving accounts of communities, projects and partners visited during her recent visit to Cambodia.
We heard about how water and sanitation, sustainable agriculture and income generation, and community empowerment projects are helping to transform the lives of communities there. To find out more, do read Charlotte’s reflection, The Power of an Encounter .We then found out about our latest campaign, Power to be , which calls on the World Bank to support local, renewable energy so that children everywhere have the power to achieve great things and lift themselves out of poverty.
Thank-you very much to Mother of God and Guardian Angels parish for hosting us, and to all who joined for your energy, enthusiasm and thoughtful questions.
